It was 3 months ago to the day, I woke up just a normal monday morning day and left the house for work. I am a welder.
I had an strange feeling and didnt want to go to work that day but did anyways ( hate missing work or anything)..
I had an angle with me this moring, i fall at work about 20feet on to cement landing on my left side i was up welding and the tank i was working on had fallen and took me down wiith it, the tank weighs around 1 1/2 ton.
It was about 8:30 9:00 am and i heard someone yell behind me, next thing i know im on the hard cement ground withall the guys rushing over to me, when i came to it my foreman was holding my hand asking if i could feel my toes and move i said yes, than out of no where this pain hit me iv never had so much pain in my life hurt so bad, so i ws rushed to the truma unit and getting alot of test done.
They had told e i broke my back, i wasnt sure what to think compressed(pretty much crushed) my L1 and L2. They doing bracing right now to try and avoid surgery. Im hoping i dont have to have any my friend broke his back few years ago 2 spots lower than mine and had surgery an year and had surgery so i worried and stressed.
Im very lucky to be in such good condition as a i am i came out of this walking bumps, bruises, and swollen left side. Left side is still swollen and messed up.
