cauda equina syndrone
First I had a lamenectomy of L4-5, then L-3-4 and in February L1-2 with fusion and to alleviate the cauda equina syndrone, and foot drop. With physical therapy in-patient for 25 days and out-patient since and doing my assignments at home, I have the "diabetic neuropathy" effect in my ankles, which feel like very uncomfortable socks. There are also large areas behind my calves and my thighs that feel numb as well. I walk with a Rollator and am carefully trying a 4-point cane. Just wondering if a different spinal treatment would benefit me. I want to walk independently! and am trying very hard, but have been told there's a window of 12-18 months for improvement.
I do have mild scoliosis, spinal stenosis and the Feb. event was called a spinal cord injury.
