In the afternoon my doctor wanted to ask on 15 November and I had surgery and a partial tumor sample was taken. Can the paralysis risk that I experience be overcome with physiotherapy? And whether the paralysis is permanent.

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for the question


Previously we wanted to ascertain whether the tumor / bone cancer that causes paralysis you mean is a tumor / cancer of the spine?


Growth of cancerous cell mass in the spine can cause a condition of pressure on the spinal cord, referred to as spinal cord compression where the condition is classified as serious.


The spinal cord has innervation that causes us to move muscles and can feel sensory sensations. Besides these innervation also controls the function of the digestive tract and control of the bladder.


The initial symptom of spinal cord compression is back pain. Emphasis on the spinal cord can cause nerve damage resulting in symptoms of tingling and weakness / paralysis in the body area below the tumor location.


If spinal cord compression is not treated properly, the sufferer may experience permanent paralysis. It also can be found complaints of defecation and defecation.


The degree of paralysis depends on the type and stage of malignancy and the size of the tumor mass. Sufficient information is needed about these matters to assess the possibility of development of paralysis that occurs. Physiotherapy is a therapy to maximize the function of the remaining muscle and innervation of organs but is usually unable to cure the cause. For that definitive therapy for cases of malignancy remains with drugs, radiotherapy, or surgery.


Take further control and consultation with the treating doctor for further plans after finding out the type of tumor cells that exist.


That's all, hope you can help


Wassalam
