Has anybody else had a compression fracture of their lumbar vertebrae? I’m in China visiting my wife’s Mom and Dad. I fell off a cement post I was sitting on, got a compression fracture on L2 vertebrae. I elected to not have surgery here in China so they told me to lay in bed for 3 months. Any advice? I had kyphoplasty surgery on L4 two years ago and it never completely stopped hurting. The lady who did my MRI here in China told my wife to not have surgery.

Are you staying in China for 3 months to stretch out your spine in bed healing ?....Call Terry Branflakes US Ambassador say you voted for TrumpOLINI and ask him who is the best USA doctor in China for a 2nd opinion ?? I doubt if Atheists here can give you relevant advice across the Pacific Ocean...maybe we have 3 members in Hawaii....Filipino docs are also too far away.....are you a Veteran? Call the nearest Veterans Hospital on duty nurse, probably in Japan or Formosa....ask the nurse what to do next also ???

I actually did it June 7th and been staying in bed since then. I feel I’m slowly getting better but I don’t know when I should start getting some exercise. My wife had to talk to the doctors because my Chinese is not so good. She says they want me to stay in bed 3 months. China blocks Google so it’s hard to research but what I do find says to start doing light exercise when you feel you can. Driving me crazy staying in bed all the time! So glad I brought my Kindle!
