Re: Thethered Spinal Cord in ADULT

I am so sorry to see that you have a spinal cord lipoma. My husband has one also in the L1-L5 area of the spine. I really don't know how to tell you this but I guess it's better to be honest than you lead you on.

Nothing has helped my husband over the last 20 yrs. They have tried everything from infusion pumps, methadone, stimulators, etc yet nothing has eased the pain that he is in.

I cath Jack 8 times a day, I disembowel him every other day and give him all the care he needs. Yet he lives to this day with pain. No medication we have tried has eased the pain.

I hope you find someone who can help you because I have searched high and low with no one being able to help.
