Is it normal for pain remains even after 9 days of vertebroplasty procedure?



– My father is 73 years old.
– Injured his back in the car on 25/2/18. Suffering severe back pain since then
– Did MRI scan on 12/3/18 discovered fracture at T10.
– Pain Management specialist suggested for nerve root block and faucet joint injection to relieve pain but no sign of pain relief
– 2nd opinion from Orthopedic told vertebroplasty is the most ideal treatment for him. Underwent vertebroplasty procedure on 28/3/18.
– After a week of vertebroplasty procedure, very little sign of pain relief.
* Is it normal for pain remains even after 9 days of vertebroplasty procedure ? As we learned from the internet this is a very effective procedure as most patient reported pain was gone within 48 – 72 hours
* With his condition and treatment, how long would he need for pain to subside ?
* Any other treatment required to eliminate pain ?

I had femoral epiphysis surgery 45 years, experienced pain in my left knee after workouts?

I had femoral epiphysis surgery 45 years.I am 62 , i have always experienced pain in my left knee after workouts , bowling or heavy lifting. The pain is primarily on the left side of the knee near below and around the knee cap.
MRI clears knee from any damage, yet the pain last for at least 30 days after activities. If i continue with the activity it will cause me to limp. When the pain is gone and i discontinue the activities every-thing is fine. I love bowling but i can not bowl more than 2 games. There is no pain while bowling , when i finish about hour later the pain and the limping begins. I need help, is there anything i can do before or after to prevent the pain. My surgery was in my left hip they inserted two screws

I am a 33 years old male who has experienced left knee pain since the age of 17?

I am a 33 years old male who has experienced left knee pain since the age of 17 (no trauma). I had an x-ray at that time but it was all ok. It was not too problematic but in the last 2 years has become very problematic. It is painful to squat and then stand again and painful after running (not an excessive runner or sports person). I had an MRI which shows: minimal joint effusion, complete loss of joint space, marginal osteophytes and subchondral bone marrow oedema and cystic change of the proximal tibiofibular joint. It also showed thinning of the articular catilage at the patellar apex, focal thinning/fissuring of the articular catilage at the inferior aspect of the trochlear groove and lateral margin of the trochlea. Everything else was normal (summary: severe proximal tibiofibular osteoarthritis and mild patellofemoral arthritis). I did have juvenile arthritis as a 2 year old but subsequently recovered after 1 year.

Would the history of the juvenile arthritis cause osteoarthritis later on in life as I still feel quite young to be having idiopathic osteoarthritis without trauma or excessive use?

Feel uncomfortable when lying down, ct scan and blood tests normal?

Hello. I am a 27 year old male. For about the last year I have had this weird sensation on my left side. From my left hip up to below the bottom of my left rib cage. It’s mostly just when I am laying on my side. When I lay on my left side it feels like I am laying on something a flat piece of cardboard or something like that. It’s mostly along the hip and under the ribs. When I turn over and lay on my right side, my left side feels really tight and it is very uncomfortable. Once in awhile it will also feel like it’s back behind my left shoulder blade also. Again this has been going on for about a year now. I have had blood work and a ct scan about 6 months ago and they both came back with nothing. The feeling just isn’t going away though. What could be causing this?

I have been feeling lots of stress and anxiety lately and experience hip joint problems?

Hi. I am a 24 year old female and I have been feeling lots of stress and anxiety lately. I study during the day and work during the evenings. My question is I have been feeling pops and clicks at my hip joints when I move my hip and legs sideways and turn. It is not pain more like a funny light precise sensation. My joints at the elbows also seem to do the same thing sometimes. Could this be the signs of a problem? This worries me a lot.

I have had this lower left back pain and lowest left rib area, please advise?

I sleep on a thin foam mattress which has given me back issues in the past but just mild discomforting pain. I sleep on the side and my back through the night. Last week for two nights I started sleeping in the other direction (180 degrees change) and I slept that way 2 nights in a row and since then I have had this lower left back pain and lowest left rib area. When I sneeze or cough I can feel the pain. I haven’t taken anything for it yet. When I pulled a door, I could feel the pain in the lower left back again. I pulled the door with my left hand.

I had spine surgery exposing my spine, is there risk of infection?

I recently had surgery to confuse five vertebrae in my neck the problem is is my incision started to create a big hole looks like it was infected my surgeon told me it was not infected but he put me on antibiotics anyway. So I have this big gaping hole it is exposing my spinal cord and my spine.I’ve had surgery once to correct it and close the incision, he cleaned it out and closed the incision and stitched it. Well the hole has returned. I was supposed to go out of town to a plastic surgeon to close the incision again but I haven’t heard back from my surgeon’s office for 2 days. What is my risk of infection from my having my spine exposed? I like my surgeon and I don’t believe that he’s trying to hurt me in any way, but should I be seeking second opinion or another doctor to close this incision and should I be doing it faster than it’s being done? it’s now been seven days since the last time I was in surgery to have it closed.

Do I have traumatic toe injuries or can this be something else?

Hi. I had one toe run over by a heavy baby stroller, (the right big toe) . However, in the past few days I have developed blood under the left big toe nail too. The traumatic injury was about 9 days ago and the other tow started hurting about 3 days ago.

Could these be just traumatic injuries or possibly something else? Luckily I have some time off to heal, but if it needs intervention , better now that later, as I go to (—–) January 7th.
