Hi, I am 49 and been having these problems for around 5 years now. I have lost faith in the nhs and Warrington general hospital.
I first had problems when I fell down the stairs rupturing two discs in my lower spine. Having had all the scans and failed injections I opted for an operation to trim the disc rupture to ease the pain being caused on my left leg nerve.
Ever since the operation the pain has worsened, I have constant pins and needles in my leg but since the op in my left foot. I have almost lost all sensation in my penis and cannot feel anything when I urinate but i can control it. I have to sit with my left leg raised to ease the pain and walking has become very limited due to the pain in my lower back and left leg.
On several occasions now I have lost the ability to walk. By this what I mean is I get very bad back pain followed by the feeling that my legs cannot suport my weight. On two occasions I have been hospitalised and after more scans and physio released but by being told they cannot find what is wrong with me.
I am now bed bound again in severe pain and discomfort unable to move using my legs. Having discovered information on Ces could this be my problem and is there anything that case done about it?
Up on till my accident I used to work, run 6 miles daily and be very fit, now I am fat, unable to be very mobile and generally have a big downer on life.
