Any one else had this happen? If so how long did it take for you to recover? I know some times it never fully does

@GTI-R US wrote:I was working on a fiesta many years ago doing a cliutch on a driveway (when i had a mobile mechanics business)
In short i pulled the car off the axle stand and jack and the whole car came down on top of me whilst i was under it. After a while i had trouble trying to breathe (usually kills you in the end )
So i managed to twist onto my side and lift the car and hook the jack with my foot then placed it in position under car enabling me to crawl out.
Once i was out other than a few cuts & bruises on my chest i thought i was alright so went to back of van to get a long breaker bar but as i bent over to get it my back locked, ''unbelievable pain''
so i did the stupidest of things to try fix myself........i lent up against the side of van counted to 3 and forced myself so my back was straight up against the side of van.....The pain was excruciating and that led to me being put in an ambulance which i called
Result was 4 smashed vertebrae and a lump of bone cartilage completely sethered
Was on crutches for 2 months as could not walk, took Tramadol for 4 years and it completely changed my lifestyle and thats when i started to put on weight.
Still the same today after all those years but i learnt to live with it & adapt. They can not operate as risks are too high, right at the base of my spine.
Hopefully yours is nothing as severe but i feel your pain fella, get it seen to straight away if you have any issues like grinding etc if you bend over as there may be debris which will wear away at the cartilage tissues if not removed. Also keep active and do all the exercises because if you just lay about it will only make things worse in the longrun. you need to keep your stomach muscles strong as they are the ones which eleviate the stress on your back when you bend over and straighten up.
All the best with it and hopefully you make a speedy recovery
A RENAULT ! you'll need morphine and crack to ease pain from that lol .@PartyPete wrote:BOB
the Honda....it's no more, at least not for me, it got smashed into outside my house a few months ago, I was paid out very well for it, and instead of fixing it I sold it as it was, all in all I made a lot of money on that car and I will still say it's by far the best car I've ever had and miss it (may end up with another in the future) so I decided to replace it with a car I know you love.....a Clio 182, good cheap fun and can do track days with
