Cauda Equina Syndrome

Posted by @user_ch3fc240e, Mar 17, 2016

Cauda Equina Syndrome

Unfortunately my brother had waited too long to address his back injury and
has severe nerve damage leaving him unable to walk on his own. He has to use
a catheter when he urinates and is not able to empty his bowel completely
resulting in constant pressure which creates chronic pain in his rectum and
down his legs for several hours at a time. He has seen several Neurologists,
Gastroenterologists and has had lengthy PT in the Fresno, Ca. area with no
real success, he has been given Morphine and Anti spasmodic drugs. Are
there any REAL SPECIALISTS that work in this area?


I’m sorry to hear about your brother. I can’t imagine living with such constant pain. Should you wish to inquire about a specialist at Mayo, please see the contact information here

Tagging @topaz who may have something to add about Cauda Equina Syndrome to this thread.

I have cauda equina syndrome and it’s awful. Doctors didn’t care or handed me huge bottles of “stuff” to drink, stomach trials, Etc. I finally found a great drug called hyoscyamine sl 0.125mg along with milk of magnesia 2xs a day and both started working. Now need the Arachnoiditis fixed and I’m good. Lol!!!
