Following 4 opperations a CT scan in feb shows I have a narrowing of the spinal canal at L45 due to a combination of broad based posterior disc protrusion and bilateral ligamentum flavum thickening. Comminuted fracture of the anterior aspect of the left iliac blade.
I understand the comminuted facture, but can anyone help me understand the rest ?? please.
Since my first Op in June 2009, microdisectomy, re exploration and a laminectomy and then following the decompression of cauda equina I had an anterior limbar spinal fusion. I now have a numb right foot previously all my pain numbness etc was on the left hand side. I am also in continuous pain from the comminuted fracture.
Can anyone help
