over x-mas, i got into a car accident where my car was totaled. i never broken a bone in my entire life of about 30 yrs, so i have no idea how long these things take to heal but i'm guessing it's gonna be at least a couple months. according to the papers it says i got a spinous process fracture of C7 and T1. i also have T4, T5, T6 vertebral body fracture of the superior endplate, whatever that means. i also have a manubrial fracture (upper sternum) but i'm guessing that's not very serious because they didn't even tell me about it. it didn't require surgery so they set me on a neck and back brace and sent me home. my spinal cord is fine thank god and i can already feel i'm healing. so has anyone had similar spine fractures? how long would you guess i'd be out for?
