Does anyone here have any experience of vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty?

I've come back today from seeing my endo and because it's now several months since I fractured my back, it's still causing considerable pain and the fractures are not showing any sign of healing, he has referred me to an orthopaedic surgeon to discuss the above.

I need more surgery - even relatively minor stuff - like I need a hole in the head, but I don't need this pain or these other problems either :(

So sorry you are still suffering terribly Laura. I hope the orthopedic surgeon can help you. How did your dental surgery go?
Hope you get to having some better days soon and that you can enjoy the Christmas season.

        Good morning Laura!...I do not have any personal experience with this, but know several who have, (several here at work)...and for many it was well worth it...and the pain was instantly gone.
    Of course everyones case is different, but it may be well worth a try. However, I do realize that you seem to have multiple issues, and fixing one thing may lead to other problems in other area's.
    Hope it is a possible for you!
