I was diagnosed with SLE and APS in 1999 and have been taking Prednisolone along with a cocktail of other drugs, ever since.
4 weeks ago I was trying to move a heavy garden gargoyle....no comments please!, and fractured the t12 vertebrae in my spine. I have been wearing a Jewetts brace 24/7 ever since and gave been told that I have mild osteoporosis and am now more likely to have further fractures.
Has anyone else had a spinal fracture like this and if so, how was it treated and how long before you were pain free?
Thanks in advance for all and any advice.
