I would like to have some advice concerning my mother’s situation. She’s been in hospital for almost 21 days for a vertebral fracture. She has a pacemaker and she couldn’t have the magnetic resonance.
After the CAT, she’s been told that it is a spondylitis, which will be officialised after the bone biopsy scheduled for tomorrow. It’s almost 20 days that she’s bedridden: she has very strong back pains that are controlled by medical therapy.
I would like to have some advice on what to expect in terms of time schedule and above all to know if she might have a different result at your Centre, in case she didn’t respond to antibiotic treatment (actually this possibility has been presented to us).
