Hi Momof2boys-

I have been reading different posts for about 1 1/2 now and yours seemed so eerily similar to our situation with our now 4 year old son.  I thought if it were to benefit either of us that maybe we could be in touch, even just thru this posting.  We are at the point now of seeing a nuerosurgeon at Duke Univ.  He is more 'progressive', so even tho our sons MRI doesn't indicate a tethered cord, his symptoms do.  This is what he refers to as an occult tethered cord, we are still watching it but these kids can be "cured" by surgery.  Hope you are still around to see this.
