My appointment with the Orthopedic Dr. went well today. We are going to do an MRI of both the upper and lower spine to determine the best treatment. He’s thinking it will be a Vertebroplasty which is basically like putting cement in the middle of the bone that is fractured.
He didn’t see any new visible fractures on the X-Ray he did today. He said an MRI will confirm that and show us exactly which vertebrae(s) would benefit from the procedure.
So for now I continue on with the pain meds and wait for insurance to approve the MRI. I am still in pain, but the pain meds are keeping it under control……..I’m just a little out of it. 🙂
