    Has anyone here every had a tetherd(sp?) spinal cord?

    I had surgery for my tetherd cord before I was 2 and last year I was unpleasantly informed that it was a possibility that it could tether again. Has anybody else had their spinal cord re-tether? I'm really freaked out about this. I know it is an extremly painful surgery. Any help or info would really be appreciated.

    Hello JBQ
    I am so sorry that you may need surgery. Although I don't know much about this injury, I do know that their is a member on the Pain Management Board that does have a problem with his tethered cord. Maybe you could go to that board also. I do wish you the very best.
