Re: [RC] broken bones, screws, etc. - DESERTRYDR1

Ok, just have to join in on the broken bone thread, as I sit here healing 
form a compression fracture of T-11 vertebra.  No, it was NOT a horse accident, 
which is lucky for me, as my boss sort of threatened to fire me if I missed any 
more time due to a horse accident.  (There were only three times, two 
cervical vertebra surgeries, and last year's broken pelvis)  This one was work 
related, I fell in a five foot deep hole.  I also had a slight but painful tear 
my MCL (knee).  

I intend to wait the full six weeks before I ride again, mainly because I 
don't want to turn a work injury into a horse injury.  But truthfully, if I 
thought I could get away with it, I feel good enough to ride right now.  The 
doesn't hurt too much, it's been three weeks, but my back feels really 
tired-painful if I do to much.

When I broke my pelvis, I was back on the horse at six weeks, before I was 
finished with PT, before I was walking without a cane.

By the way Lysane, you have FOUR compression fractures?  How'd you do THAT?
