Did I fracture or sprain my hip, or is it a spinal compression fracture?


I was in a close call on my motorcycle, and used my leg to pivot my bike to avoid a car. For a week I had minor pain in my leg. I felt great for a couple of months, but in the last week, I have had severe pain sitting, and getting up from the seated possition. The pain starts at my hip and shoots towards my foot on the outside of my leg. I have full range of motion after getting up and moving.

Can the sciatic nerve be damage after a procedure to the spinal cord?


A friend of mine had what is called a vertebrae plasti, to repair fractured lower vertebrae. It appears that the procedure was successful, but something else happenedd afterward. Could the sciatic nerve have been pinched or compressed diring the procedure, causing intense pain, to the point of not being able to plant her feet.
----------

yep. It could be temporary...from swelling related to the procedure itself. Sounds like she has 'drop foot' which can be corrected with AFO (ankle foot orthotics).  (+ info)
