Good evening everyone on this amazing site. So gald I found it. My back went out after getting up out of bed. I layed on the floor for three hours and every time I moved my lower back hurt. So I called my mom, talked to her for a while,had lunch on the floor. As long as I didn't move, I was OK. Finally decided to call the ambulance. They wanted to pick me up as the our house did not allow them to bring the streatcher in our bedroom. I asked them to drag me out on a sheet and then down the stairs on the streatcher ? They said no. They picked me up to sit me on a chair with wheels on it. I felt my back going into the most pain I had ever felt. I almost passed out. Then they put me in a different chair that went down stairs. Then was moved to the stretcher. Was given morphine for pain. At the ER the surgeon knew I had CES and needed imeadiate surgery. I was left with not feeling from waist down. Spent 6 wks in rehibiliation hospital. I am now home continueing to learn how to walk. I am worried that I will hit a plateau and not regain my ability to walk with out a walker. Does anyone have a history of learning how to walk again after CES ? I would appreciate any response, the good along with the bad. I feel I'm doing good, just want to know how others faired and delt with CES. Blessings
