Compression fracture of T9 inferior endplate My father 67 years old with medications for diabetes and BP since 12 years was having back pain since April 22, 2016. Now after MRI scan (on June 3, 2016) report attached it has been diagnosed that he is having fracture in spine. He has been prescribed for custom made belt to support complete back. He is also having mobizox pain killer. During the period he had 30 tablets. There was no such incident such as falling or any accident which I can relate as a cause but my dad carried my son aged 3years and walked for some distance Questions 1. He seems to be comfortable using pain killers so wanted to know for how many days he can have? What are the side effects of using Mobizox? Can you suggest any painkillers which he can use for more days and is safe. 2. He is completely on bed rest and takes food while sleeping and gets up only for going to toilet. Is it ok if he eats while sleeping? 3. He is still having pain so does physio at this stage will help for his speedy recovery 4. He feels its more painful using the belt than without belt so he prefers not to use the belt. Please advise, what is the better option for his recovery. Most of the time he is on sleeping posture and doesn?t try to get up as he is having pain. 5. Doctor didn?t prescribe calcium supplement as he doesnt want to prescribe too many medicines at a time. Does calcium help in recovery. 6. Any other tests I can do to know the cause? 7. any other suggestions, please let me know
