Hello three months ago I had an accident at work, x ray showed compression fracture of T11,T12,L10 with less than 25% loss of vertebral body high also additional undisplaced coronal oblique orientated fracture through the anterior half of the T12 on the right.
I was wearing back brace(TLSO) for 6 weeks, pain was really frustrating. Then I had a check up in the hospital, x ray showed my back is healing. Doctor said than healing process can even take 9 months, I'm 19 so they said it should heal by itself, without any surgery.
yesterday I had second check up and there's no progress. X rays from first check up and yesterday are the same. Pain got better now and I can do more movements, doctor said I shouldn't worry that it heal in few months and probably I won't have another x ray. I really worry now and I'm a bit disappointed , I just can't understand why there's no change.
I read a lot about that topic, usually they say it takes 8 weeks to 3 months to heal.
If anyone could share some experience I would be really grateful
