3 weeks ago I started with some back pain. Doc did xray and said I have "loss of height" in my T9 vertebrae. My research tells me that means a compression fracture. They said its looks to be from an injury. The only event that it could be from took place 18 months ago. It was a grappling hook incident. I couldnt sleep for 2 weeks and didnt feel great again for about 3 months. I never had it checked out and eventually the pain went away.
Now all this time later it just randomly started hurting. Why would it start hurting now? What treatments could I be looking forward to after all this time? Will the bones have already healed, possibly improperly by this point? Everything else I see online talks about treatments received right after the injury happens... what will they do with such a large gap in time between injury and now?
I was just given this news this morning. I have an MRI scheduled in 3 days. After that I am sure I will have a follow-up with the doc, then probably have to see a specialist, then probably more tests... just seems so far away, hoping to fill my brain with speculation by then.
