আমার বিবরণ, cauda equina সিন্ড্রোম সঙ্গে আমার জীবনের, আমার নিজের ভাষায়. On video. Enjoy!
I was moving a concrete splash pad. Not far, ঠিক 18 inches. I tried to lift and slide it… not good. I stood it up on its end and walked it – perfect. Later that night, I got up out of the recliner to go to bed. My lower back felt “funny” and a little stiff or tight.
I awoke the next morning with sharp pain running down my right leg. On the 10 স্কেল, I rated it a 5. Kim set an appointment with a Chiropractor for the next morning. By the time I got home from work, my pain level was at a 10. I had never felt such pain. I took pain meds and went to bed.
সকালে এর পুঁচকে ঘন্টার মধ্যে, I partially awoke but still dreaming. It seemed like my legs were going numb. I feel back asleep. In the morning, I awoke to find that I had no feeling below my waist. Knowing something was very wrong with me, আমরা রোগচিকিত্সাবিশেষ সঙ্গে প্রাথমিক অ্যাপয়েন্টমেন্ট রাখা, with me in a wheelchair. She suspected Cauda Equina Syndrome and recommended I go directly to an Emergency Room. I did.
সেখানে আপনার অভিজ্ঞতা কী ছিল?
The ER told me that I did not have Cauda Equina Syndrome and they gave me a referral to a back specialist. We didn’t want to wait that long. Kim called our Doctor to get a MRI ordered; আমরা তখন ঢুকে 2 এমআরআই শুক্রবার ঘটছে সঙ্গে বীমা অনুমোদনের জন্য দিন, ফেব্রুয়ারি 15ম.
My Doctor got the results on Tuesday the 19th and referred me immediately to a neurosurgeon. I saw him 2 days later. He wanted me in the hospital now for surgery the next day to decompress the spine.
এটা সব পরে cauda equina সিন্ড্রোম ছিল - একটি জরুরী সার্জারির পরিস্থিতি.
Problem – I was on a blood thinner and they couldn’t operate then. I stopped the med and went into the hospital on Sunday, অস্ত্রোপচারের মাধ্যমে পরের দিন, 25th.
আপনি কি সার্জারি আছে কি?
The surgeon performed a L4/L5 microdiscectomy to remove parts of a ruptured disk in order to relieve the pressure on my spinal nerve bundle. The disk had ruptured directly into the canal and had crushed the nerves controlling the lower ½ of my body.
কি পরের ঘটেছে?
আমি তীব্র Rehab মধ্যে এক সপ্তাহ অতিবাহিত, learning how to walk and shower when you can’t balance or feel anything below the waist. Human’s use their feet, ankles, and legs to balance – I was getting no feedback from them. Although the surgery relieved the pain, স্নায়ু শুধুমাত্র প্রতিদিন প্রায় 1mm এ পুনর্জাত, এবং তারপর মাত্র জন্য 12 - 18 মাস. So getting all of my feeling back was a long shot.
কিভাবে পুনরুদ্ধার হচ্ছে?
Physically – After Rehab came Physical Therapy. Some normal feeling returned to parts of my thighs. The rest stayed numb or got tingly painful. Now, 10 মাস আঘাত পরে, feeling has returned except in the areas covered by underwear and from the ankles down. My feet are very painful and I have a possibly torn tendon. I’m having that checked next week.
Emotionally – I viewed myself as a Christian with a deeper than average faith and commitment to Jesus. Yet I found myself asking God why this had happened, wanting to know His purpose for it. Through teaching from Living On The Edge’s Chip Ingram, I realized that God had placed His mark and reminder on me. It was time for the next step in my faith journey.
অবশ্যই এটা যে সহজ ছিল না! It was a lot of anguish, আত্মঅনুসন্ধান, প্রার্থনা, and crying that led me to one fateful night where I placed my Cauda Equina Syndrome into His hands. I wanted Him to use me however He could. He was asking to yield to Him in everything and I was finally at the point where I realized that I couldn’t do without that.
I do not know where God will take me. I do have a busy 2014 বূ্যহিত! Kim and I are launching a Small Group Ministry at our church, আমি জন্য প্রস্তুতি এবং সার্টিফাইড ম্যানেজমেন্ট একাউন্টেন্ট পেশাদার পরীক্ষা গ্রহণ করছি, and putting my experience with Cauda Equina Syndrome I am becoming involved in a support and education non-profit for Cauda Equina Syndrome which is seeking to grow worldwide. I certainly won’t have much spare time! Not bad for someone who a few months ago was staring a lifelong disability in the face.
আমি সবসময় উপসর্গ থাকবে, Cauda equina সিন্ড্রোম আমার মরণ দিন পর্যন্ত আমাকে একটি অংশ হতে হবে, but it will NOT define me. It is God’s tool to keep me humble.
