My mom fell a few weeks ago and like all good moms she suffered in silence. Why do they do that?
It hasn’t gotten better (though she kept telling me it had–a little). Yesterday she went for an MRI scan. She has a cracked vertebrae. Her doctor says she’ll need a procedure called a kyphoplasty. Doctors will inject cement into her broken piece.
Medical science is amazing but there’s no way to make this any easier. You don’t want your mom to hurt.
