    T5 Compression fx
    An_241691 posted:
    I will try to make this brief. I was a restrained driver involved in MVC. Air bags deployed, no major injuries. Continued to have right sided chest pain. Ct of spine showed T5 compression fx. I have been treated for cervical cancer since '09. Chemo, radiation, brachy therapy etc. Had never been told I had any fractures in my spine, have a lot of xrays, pet scans, & some MRIs. My bone density is fine. Was started on Vitamin D3 2000u daily for abnormal labs. Have been on oxycodone for pain management. The pain meds don't seem to help the back pain which is were the shoulder blades make a "V". Is there any thing that can be done to manage the pain? What could have caused the T5 fx? Is it the accident or could it be related to complications from cancer treatment?
