Unhappy Nerve Damage in S2, S3, S4

There are not a lot of people that understand what I am going through. I had a surgery in 2008 in which the surgeon made a terrible mistake. While she stitched during the Hysterectomy she sewed into my spinal cord in th siatic region and permaitly damaged S2, S3, & S4. It has been a difficult 2.5 years. I live on pain medication and still have pain in my left upper leg and left saddle. I left Kaiser after it happened and switched to a Sutter Doctor. This Sutter Dr. wont make any changes to my medication and just fills it as is. I know I am tolerent of the Morphine that I am on. I am depressed and tired of my bowel/bladder issues and pain issues. Does anyone out there understand where I am and can you tell me what you have done to get through your battle and new life after damage.
From, Robalina

Re: Nerve Damage in S2, S3, S4

I'd like to suggest that you talk to Heartbrokenn...she posted a thread entitled "C1-2 contusion...advice/help" down the page a bit. Her cord was also injured by a needle being stuck into it. You can exchange info and what has helped or hurt and sites that have info, if any exist.

I'm sorry this hurts and hope you have a good malpractice lawyer helping you. Sloppy docs need to pay.

I have some of the same issues but from a different surgery mishap. The pain is constant and the meds are the only way I get thru. The numbness in my bladder/rectum are just terribly hard to deal with, not to mention my sex organs, they only work one one side! Life is tough but I keep praying for a miracle and healing.
