Today I had a consultation with orthopedic team at the Whangarei hospital and got a better idea what actually has happened to my back. The footing I was shown from the MRI scans gave me a bit of a shock. The collapsed vertebrae visible in the MRI has likely shrunken me by about 15mm and I am unlikely to catch up with that again. The damaged vertebrae is the one with the line through it. Compare it’s height to that of the ones above and below. Luckily the damage is in the upper part of the spine  where there is not a lot of movement and the spine is rather static due to the ribcage and sternum.
