Kathy-My wife has been diagnosed with this problem as a result of having a disc removed July 99 , bowl and bladder control are difficult , doctors say problem due to compressed nerves and it takes roughly 6-8 months for a nerve to recover ,we wait and pray !
: I had surgery to remove and disc, put in screws and bolts. The clamp pressed on the nerve and bone causing paralasis from the waist down. Removed the screws and bolts two days later with no change in paralasis. The dr. says 6 to 12 months for the feeling to come back. With PT, I am walking well, but no feeling back. There is little bladder and bowl control and feels as though everything is droped down, which it is. I am very fortunate to have gotten back what I have, but would be interested in knowing if there are similar cases. Thanks
