Five months since I suffered a transverse process fracture. Now I have stinging pains in my upper butt and lower back. What is this and treatment ?

Possibly a sciatica

Open-uri20130311-20022-16lfl0s
A sciatica is caused by an irritation of a nerve in the back that then can cause pain that runs into the buttock like you are describing. There are also potentially other causes as well. Usually a detailed history and exam can determine the cause, an MRI can be very helpful. Thank you for your question.

A few months ago I suffered a L3 transverse process fracture and have been having a stinging pain in my butt ever since. What is this and treatment?

Transverseprocess Fx

Forearm_fracture
A transverse process fracture typically does not cause buttock pain. It mgiht be due to some soft tissue injury adjacent to it, or there might be something else... An MRI could exclude an occult disc herniation or other problem....

How long will it take to heal from transverse process fracture of lumbar 2&3?

~8 wks.

Fracture
Transverse process fractures of vertebrae take 8 wks and occ. longer to heal. As long as there is no other fractures in the vertebrae( and these are commonly isolated fxs) than they routinely heal uneventfully and w/ minimal treatment( bracing/ pain med). See your MD; these fractures are sometimes associated w/ internal organ injuries when signifigant trauma is involved. GL!

What is the treatment for a compression fracture of the 5th lumbar spine?

Take it easy

Most spine fractures will heal within 3 months with bracing, limiting strenuous activity and close follow-up with a spine specialist. Some fractures require surgical stabilization and kyphoplasty is an option for elderly patients with compression fractures. Check out spine-health.com.

If you have fractures in the lumbar region, what would be best treatment? It is very, very painful.

Depends

Forearm_fracture
Non displaced stress fractures are treated with bracing and time. Please note smoking an d nonsteroidals delay bone healing. If the fracture is displaced or you have neurological symptoms then surgery should be considered

Non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx what is non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx and what will happen woith treatment

There

There are three bones in the little ("pinky") toe (some folks only have two), and they are called phalanges (the pleural of "phalanx"). The one closest to the foot is the proximal phalanx, the one closest to the end of the toe is the distal phalanx, and the one in the middle is called.... well, it's the MIDDLE phalanx. The diaphysis of a long bone (these are all considered "long" bones even though they're not really all that long) is the middle section of the bone. Transverse means sideways, and fracture means break. So to translate med-speak to English (Google should think of doing something like this), you have a sideways fracture in the bone closest to the foot in your pinky toe in the middle of the bone. Non-displaced means the pieces are lined-up nicely, and there is no need to "reduce" it (put the pieces back in alignment). So this is really good news for you.... you don't need to have the thing put back in place, and the fracture is in the middle of the bone, so it doesn't cross or involve a joint, which means you're not gonna get arthritis in the toe later on (at least not from THIS fracture). Bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal, and since the 5th toe has it's own motion during the gait cycle, you really can't tape a 5th toe to a 4th toe. And there is no need to put a cast on for a toe fracture. So just keep your walking to a minimum for the next 2 months or so. Now's not the best time to do your Christmas shopping... in case you have that planned for this weekend like I do... and you'll probably be more comfortable in a shoe with a stiff sole, because bending the toe with every step is going to cause that little piggy to go wee-wee-wee all the way home. How'd I do????

Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

bone windows reveal a fracture of the right transverse process of L1 What does this mean ?

You have fracture

Untitled
You have fracture of the transver process.The transverse process is part of the musculoskeletal system. The transverse process is a bony structure that protrudes from each side of the vertebrae, which means that there are two transverse processes connected to each vertebrae of the spine. These processes are responsible for attaching muscles and ligaments to the spinal column.
