Recovery After Spinal Cord Surgery?
Hello, 1 year ago My spinal nerve surgery (central surgery) for removal of the tumor, due to the tumor has caused my nerves to be depressed and half of my body (navel to the bottom) can not be moved, is it still able to recover and brp% possible it happened ?? until now it’s still physiotherapy … thank you very much ..
Spinal tumors can affect various structures in the spine, such as bones, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels. Symptoms depend on:
Location of the tumor.
The type of tumor, whether benign or malignant. If it is malignant, is there a spread of the tumor (metastasis).
These things determine how much damage the tumor causes. Large tumors or tumors that are malignant (cancer), will certainly cause pressure and damage to the bones and nerves that are more severe. The nerve loses its function, so the limbs that are innervated will become paralyzed or experience weakness.
We cannot determine the possibility of your recovery, because we do not handle you. Please consult with your treating doctor, because the doctor who best understands your current condition and how the history of your illness. Ask in detail what you want to know, if necessary make a small note. Of course doctors can only provide estimates of healing, not certainty. In some people, nerve function can return gradually, although it may not recover 100%. Recovery time can take months or even years. Generally, people who consistently undergo physiotherapy and do not despair, can feel improvement, even though it is not perfect. Invite your family to support your healing, because with the right support, someone can get the spirit to recover.
Hopefully this answer can help you find healing. Regards.
