: In november 1998 i had anterior discectomy & fusion, the next day i was back in surgery for a posterior laminectomy. Due to complications of the first surgery.
: I have been through alot of complications from these surgeries. I now have cauda equina syndrome and have some partial paralysis from the waist down. I straight catheterize myself everyday and have to use senecot and bisacodyl enemas everyother day to have a b/m. I would like to correspond with others in similar or the same as myself. Please email me.
I don't have same diagnosis as yours; however, I can sympathize with the straight cathing and b/m program. I'm a C4 incomplete quad (since last February), and I am now "walking" but have not regained those functions back.
