    Question Serious Back Injury

    I'm just recovering from a really bad back injury and I wanted to get some feedback from people who maybe seen something similar.

    The last cycle I did was back in may of 04, fina with nothing else.
    In september, I went to sleep one night, woke up the next morning and it felt like i was hit by truck. I didn't sustain any injury in the gym (that I know of).
    I couldn't walk properly for a few days...it took about 2 weeks before i could go back to the gym. I felt as thought I never really recovered, I would get all kinds of back spasms but I continued to work out. I saw a chiropractor..he couldn't help me. In December I went to see my family doctor, and he sent me for a x-ray which came back negative. At this point he was reluctant to refer me to a specialist and told me to come back in the new year and he would look at me again.

    About two weeks into January, I woke up one morning. Couldn't move at all.
    I felt winded. The worst pain you could ever imagine. It felt like someone took a baseball bat to my legs. I had to be rushed to the hospital, turned out I suffered a compression fracture in my L1 vertebrae. The doctors had never anything like it. I was told this is not something that happens spontaneously, it's usually the result of a fall or an accident. Neither of which happend to me. My question is could juice have caused muscles in my back to crush my vertebrae

    Welcome to the board! I'm no doctor, but unless the fina made you grow like the Incredible Hulk overnight, there is no way the muscles would do that. I don't see it being juice related at all. All I could say I wish you all the best and good luck to a speedy recovery! Keep us updated.

    There was a lot of talk that I may not walk again because of the bone spurs putting pressure on my spinal cord. Because of the nature of the injury the neurosurgeon wanted to operate immediately. There was a high probability I would lose a lot of blood and being a diabetic, there was a good chance I wouldn't heal very quickly + all the other potential complications that go along with the surgery. I'm at the point where I'm learning how to walk again.
    It's amazing, I went from throwing around 300lbs + plus on bench to not knowing if I was going to ever walk again. I'm being told I'm looking at 12-18 months before I can make a full recovery.
