I fell off top step of ladder 2 1/2 weeks ago, did go to emergency room because of pain and fear. CAT Scan showed internal organs ok, but minor fracture of L4 vertebrae. I stayed off work for 4 days, but the pain in horrible still, and I know sitting is aggravating things, I just had to take 3 days and did nothing to try to allow healing but first this as I sit, it can feel it and so worried about what to do. Can anyone tell me of your experience? I cannot get to neurosurgeon until 5/14, but I don't think there is anything they can do? Thank you for reading my question... please help!!!
