How Long To Heal Compression Fractures

How Long To Heal Compression Fractures

I have 6 compression fractures in T12 to L5. I fractured them in December bending over opening a tv tray. Does anyone know how long it takes to heal? It still feels like my vertebra are crushing when I stand!

It does take a while to heal a compression fracture. I have had mine since November. It is feeling better but still have days of pain.

Yes, I had L1, L2 and T12 all cemented, and Yes again, huge relief. A back brace was suggested, but the cement/kyphoplasty procedure was highly recommended since I was in so much pain.
