My mum is 60 years. She has had no health problems before this came about 8 months ago. She started complaining of a backache for a few months. She got worse later when her lower body, starting from the waist got paralysed.
MRI Scans revealed a swelling in her spine. This swelling was slowly cutting off communication to these parts. She was operated to remove the swelling and started walking again in 4 weeks. Numbness in her lower abdomen and legs stayed.
Another MRI Scan now shows something similar in a different part of her spine. What could this be? Is she to carry on having operations every 3 months to remove these swellings.
I will be very grateful for any information passed on. She's in severe pain and worried.
