  • Be sure to get into see your urologist as soon as possible. Doctors may take this whole possible cauda equina problem casually, but people who developed it tell you the faster it is caught, the better off the chances are for recovery.

    Yes, it is probably just some problem the urologist can help you with...but it is very important to find out for sure. Since you are a big researcher, I am sending a link for your to read...but NOT to worry about...any of us with lumbar problems need to be familiar with all the symptoms for cauda equina syndrome. Most doctors will just tell the patient to "give it time...." Bad advice if something is really wrong!!

    (This is one time you'll never hear me say: " You're still early in recovery..." ;) )

    Blessings,

  • thanks for coming to my party :party: :party:
    I know this could turn into something very serious, I'm afraid my surgeon is not wanting to face the fact that I may be his first FBSS,:nailbite: so he is sending me to others for possible answers :think: I understand, and will see the urologist asap, I hope he does find "something else"... we will see. I know 5 1/2 months is still fairly early especially with a second surgery in Dec, but the reality is I am not improving at all, in fact I am getting more leg pain as well as higher and lower back pain
    Fact is... i'm really scared, thats all I'm going to say about that... :)
    Thanks for the care and concern, we should party more often
    :party: :party: :party:
    God bless and keep You,

  • I'm just so sorry you're going through all this, and that the surgeon doesn't seem to have a feel for what might be going on. I always wish I could see inside my doctor's head, because obviously he knows a great deal more than what he's saying...and I'm sure the same is true for you and your doc.

    Don't give up. Keep pushing for answers. That's all we can do till we hit a brick wall...then we bounce off and try in a different direction until we find answers!!

  • I have given anesthesia for bladder slings and revisions of bladder slings. I have had one as well, and if I were having any incontinence, I would call the doctor that placed the bladder sling to rule out any issues with the sling first. To me, it is important to make sure that the mesh is intact, because it can erode the skin or have other issues.

    Hope this helps!!
