Cauda Equina Syndrome

Petart44 profile image

My consultant has safety netted me regarding "cauda equina syndrome" not sure what safety netted means, is he saying I have it or does he suspect I have it?

I`m so confused right now and not sure what to think? I`m really worried about what the future holds for me if I do have it.

Could anybody shed some light on this for me please, if possible?

Thank you for reading.

Thank you for telling me about this as I haven't heard of it before. I had an operation a few years ago a lumber diecompression. And what with everything elso going on its something to bare in mind. Sorry I cant help.

No problem, hopefully this has helped and you get the right treatment

How are you doing - have things got better?

Hi Claire_Cauda.

In answer to your question, unfortunately no. I`m still waiting on Rheumatology to give me an appointment date. I have noticed a bit of numbness in my lower spine recently but not sure if that is due to the pain or something else. Thank you for asking though.

Oh sorry to hear that - hoping you get your appointment date soon !

Thank you and same
