It Is Possible To Return To Normal After Bone TB Surgery 2 Years Ago?
Having been suffering from bone tuberculosis for more than 4 years, I have performed surgery twice, the first in 2015 and the second in 2017 after surgery from the waist of the cow’s leg, it cannot be moved (paralyzed).
Hello Bro. Lutfi, thank you for consulting us at HealthReplies.com. We will try to explain about the questions you ask us.
Bone TB is also known as TB spondylitis, which is a manifestation of tuberculosis which attacks the bone. This can cause an infection in the bone which can then destroy the bone and over time it will affect the position of the disturbed bone. Generally bone TB attacks the spine, but it can also occur in other places such as bone joints. Treatment of bone TB is slightly different from pulmonary TB in general, requiring surgery as a form of additional treatment. It also requires physical therapy to train bone strength and flexibility.
In your case surgery is indeed needed for the process of treating your bone TB, because this is of course so that it does not prevent permanent spinal damage that will cause complications such as total paralysis forever. However, all the actions certainly have some risks, do not rule out the possibility of your second operation. The possibility of the operation being carried out had a few side effects in the form of shock to the spinal nervous system which is located near the spine.
It is very difficult for us to ascertain the percentage of recovery of limb weakness that can occur, only for recovery, of course, can still be restored by continuing therapy from your doctor and accompanied by other additional therapies, namely physiotherapy by experts / physiotherapists. To ascertain how likely it is to be able to return to normal, of course you need to consult with your treating doctor, because he knows better the underlying cause of the paralysis that occurs, besides that he knows better how to restore these weaknesses as before.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful for you. thanks.
