Tethered Spinal Cord
In June 2009 I had a surgery to untether my spinal cord, I am 51 years old and no one knew I had Spina Bifida or TCS my entire life. After the surgery I developed more problems, numbness in different parts of my body, especially my left leg and foot. I have a lot of pain in my leg and back and it is getting difficult to walk. After three months of physical therapy I went to see a neurologist who ordered an EMG and requested a MRI the next morning. The MRI report shows that there is residuel tethering with the conus tethered dorsally at the mid L3. it also says there is susceptibility artifact which may be related to hemosiderin or possibly metal shavings at surgery area. I am wondering if anyone knows what all this means and if anyone can interpret the meaning of the MRI. I am going to the nuerosurgeon next week and want to be informed when I go into his office.
