Talk to your doctor. If you are as sick as you say, you may qualify but there is a whole process that has to be undertaken. If your doctor thinks that you are disabled from work, he or she can help with this.

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.

Would a spinal compression fracture show on ct scan 5 yrs later?

Yes

Forearm_fractures
If you had a definitive fracture of the ? thoracic or lumbar spine 5 years ago from trauma( mva, fall etc.) then a good quality CT scan w/ appropriate 'cuts' should be able to visualize in most cases the healed vertebral body fracture.If it was a 'questionable ' fx. or one sustained w/ minor trauma it may not be seen or appreciated.

hairline fracture in spinal column how long will it take to heal?

Varies

Forearm_fracture
This depends on your age, smoking history, underlying medical problems, location and type of fracture and if it is truly a new fracture or an incidental finding on an x-ray that was done since you had pain or injured the area and whether this is a stable or unstable fracture and whether there are associated injuries to other structures.
