Hi Everyone! I'm new to this site and am so glad to find it. I have just been diagnosed with CES (Cauda Equina Syndrome) and am thankful that it seems to be an acute case, as of now.
I just had a baby 3 months ago and never regained feeling in the "saddle" portion of my body ever since labor and my epidural. Ruling the epidural out, they have found 2 herniated discs leading to the numbness, lower back pain, sciatic pain, etc. I am scheduled to see the head surgeon on Monday in the morning.
I have been researching this condition for months because I had a feeling this is what was wrong with me. I cannot find ANYTHING talking about the recovery after this surgery. I know everyone with this condition has different issues and I'm sure everything is different after surgery but I was hoping for someone to give me an idea of what to expect. I don't know how I'll be able to take care of a 3-4 month old, and not being able to pick him up will just break my heart. If anyone has any information I would really appreciate it!!
Thanks sooo much in advance!
