I thought you all might be interested in something I recently learned at my own expense. In addition to BX I also have a very bad back including osteoporosis. So about 2 months ago I bent over to get something out of the refrigerator and I felt something in my back go. It was 4 compression fractures in my spine.
This past Tuesday I had kyphoplasty done which is where they put cement into the fractures of the to repair them and make them strong again. When the orthopedic surgeon put the cement in a little bit of it got into my artery and it's the little bit of cement follow the blood supply to the heart and into my lungs. Apparently this is a very rare occurrence but it does happen
