Suggested Questions And Answer :


should an 80-yr old have back surgery?

Hi...saw your question, I have not had any surgery although my dx is pretty much the same. I've seen a number of doctors and they have all told me DO NOT have the surgery unless ur unable to walk and r fully incontinent....because there is a good chance that u will b after the surgery, so hold off until there is nothing left to loose so to speak., I have been told that success rates r not 85%, closer to 50/50...Its a painful proceedure and a long recovery time. I hope your mom gives this alot of thinking b4 going ahead...she sure should have gotten another opinion ur right. I know when ur in alot of pain ur willing to take drastic measures for relief. good luck to her, keep us posted on how everything goes for her...I wish her all the best. opus88

back pain

Hi there! It is common to experience pain and discomfort following surgery. This is largely due to associated inflammation and is likely to settle in a few weeks. Meanwhile this is managed with rest, anti-inflammatory medications and pain killers; while physiotherapy is initiated depending on individual case. If at anytime the pain gets unbearable in spite of the pain killers, you may consider consulting his treating orthopedician or visit the ER. You may discuss his progress in detail with his treating orthopedician at the follow-up appointment. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Chronic Back, shoulder, and neck pain after decompression surgery

  Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum. I am glad to hear your syrinx is gone.....but wonder if they checked you for other related conditions....ICP, POTS, sleep apnea,tethered cord, ehlers-danlos...disk issues.....many can cause similar if not the same symptoms. Did they check your complete spine for other syrinx's? Some Drs only look at the cervical spine for them, but they can form anywhere in the spine. Deff have them check you for related conditions.... Another possibility is having a reaction to the patch used....do you know if you had a dura patch placed and what type it is?   Other possibilities are surgical in nature or they could be due to what you do on a daily basis...sometimes we try to do too much too soon and that can cause set backs and take us longer to feel relief.

I had a lamectomy surgery on my back but my symptons came back worse anyone else have this?

You should call your family doc or your surgeon immediately.  Losing bladder or bowel control is a condition called "cauda equina".  From my readings it is a condition requiring emergency surgery to avoid permanent damage to your nerves. dakmba

Back surgery........nay or yay?

Umm its a tough one-I can tell you I had no choice on three of mine and fourth one ( 1/09) was kinda elective with having a fusion-just meaning that I finally said yes flippn do this I am sick of this. My first 3 when I ruptured the disc's they fragmented (peice of disc broke off) and had alot of nerve damage. The first and worse one I did I tried to put off surgery for about 3 monthes doing PT and pills and well I am still dealing with the nerve damage from that one. I can tell you each time I woke up from surgery I was completly pain free-3 xs I walked out of hospital with no more than reg tylonal and was fine. Well the 3rd time well yeah thats wy Im here.lolWith all that said I have seen the good and bad of back surgeries ( Im a massage therapist) and it really depends on so much and your doc would hopefully be the best judge of what to do-yes I would do all 4 over agian. :)   what do they want to do to you anyway?

How much is too much?

Im sorry about what you are going through and I understand legitimate pain... It sounds like you have a GOOD doctor who is actually worried about you becoming a"junkie". Alot of doctors don't and by the time we figure it out its much to late.

Spine surgery and continued pain

Hi there! Yes, it is common to experience pain/ discomfort after surgery. This occurs due to inflammation and is likely to settle in some time; though it is best advised to discuss the prognosis and the expected recovery with your treating surgeon, who would have the relevant clinical details of the condition and the surgery. Hope this helps. Take care!
