Mar 17, 2016 · Cauda Equina Syndrome: Difficulty with going to the bathroom in Spine Health

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?
