Recovery Time for a T12 Compression Fracture

07/21/2010

Question:

How long does it take to heal a t2 compress fracture in a 15 year old healthy eating, living, person? I got a xray document back saying this: There is slight depression of the anterior aspect of the vertebral body noted at T12 level and may suggest slight compression fracture. This should be correlated if there is any history of clinical symptoms over this site. The rest of the vertebra show normal heights. Vertebral alignments seem to be maintained. Evaluation of lumbosacral spine also shows normal vertebral heights and alignments. The disc spaces are maintained throughout the thoracic and lumbosacral spine. I have ALSO a bump on my back it was large at first now smaller, i already rested 4 weeks. i can walk fine, pick things up fine odd times i get pain.
