    Fracture of T12

    I have a compound fracture of the T 12 and am in a back brace. I have alot of pain around the hip area. How long does it take to get over it?? I havent been able to work for almost 3 months...

    Did you have surgery (fusion, rodding, etc.)??

    What kind of brace?

    Do you have any resulting spinal cord injury or neurologic deficits from your fracture?

    Where is your pain (back, butt, legs, etc.)??

    Have you had recent Xrays to be sure that things are healing as they should?

    Unfortunately, with some back fractures it is common to have on-going chronic pain. It is difficult to have an injury like this and not have some long-term pain in the back area, esp. with twisting or extreme bending.
