The antibiotic Zosyn had lots of side effects. A double dose of morphine would not bring the pain down. Toradol was used to treat the lumbar issues.

My compression fracture is at T12, caused by a fall. The pain has been severe for four months, both in the center of the back and the left side. I received a Vertebroplasty last week. I am a little disappointed in the results. Even though the pain at the side is completely gone, the back is still as painful as before the procedure. Still, the treatment has had a positive effect, definitely better than medication.
