six months ago, I was in a head on collision. They had to get me out by the jaws of life. I had 7 broken ribs, a collapesed lung, 2 bulging dics, torn ligament and pinched nerve in my neck and a broken hand that they didn't catch while I was in the hospital for a week. I also, had a hole bore in my arm that you could have stuck your thumb into (gross, I know:() filled with glass , that they had to sew up. When they inserted the chest tube, I thought I was going to die!! I swear if they hadn't reached the end of my lung they would have gone on up through my throat!! It felt like they ripped my insides to pieces To this day, I still hurt where it hit two specfic places inside and under my breast hurts.....not to mention it hurts to wear a bra. My neck and upper back and shoulders hurt, and I have shooting pains down my arm to my fingers. My pinky and ring finger look deformed as do my wrist. I'm going to a specialist thathas never seen me net wednesday and they haven't even examined me, but want to do an epurdural (SP) I guess my # of questions are as follows 1) do the nerves ever fix themselves? 2)do bulging dics resolve themselves? 3) will the pain in my nek shoulder, back and arm hand and fingers ever go away?? Thanks:)
