Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

Has anyone had scoliosis spine fusion surgery, then had a injury that caused a spine fracture below there?

It could happen

Arthritis
You could break the spine below the fusion if enough force applied to cause the fracture of the spine. As you know the will be more intense above the fusion site and that cause more degenerative arthritis above and below the fusion site.

Does the term "broken back" refer to disc herniation, or individual vertebrae being fractured, or both?

Bone

Bone fracture compression, flexion distraction common spine fracture medical broken back is a bone injury or disruption of normal spine alignment I personally don't use broken back to describe disc abnormalities eons exception the chance fracture is mostly a soft tissue flexion distraction injury

If you are able to safely see your blind spots and not doped up on meds, I would likely be ok with you driving. Check with your spine surgeon.

How long does it take for a C2 vertabrae fracture to heal?

3+ months

Neck_fracture
Fractures of C2 range from very mild fractures to severe fractures that place the spinal cord at risk. Some need a simple collar, some a halo, and others a surgery. Depending on the specific fracture and how it is treated, it can take 3-6 months to be completely healed. All C2 fractures should be seen by a spine surgeon to make sure they heal properly to protect your spinal cord

Dr. Claude Parola answered:

I have a fracture at C2, I now feel nerve pain, pins & needles. Could it be plantar fasciitis? Is fracture cause of plantar fasciitis or vice versa?

Unlikely

Plantar_fasciitis
C2 fracture would cause problems most likely in the upper part of the body such as your arms, unless there is complete transection of the spinal cord at that level(C2)
