i am a male 16 years of age.i got paralysed in september 2003 due to an epidural hematoma. first i should tell you that i am a patient of chronic renal faliure on regular hemodialisis from 2001.i am also hypertensive with taking three types of antihypetensive medicines.
for my paralysis one morning i was sleeping that i got severe pain in my back. we went to hospital and in 3 to 4 hours i got paralysed with sensory level at D6.the CT scan showed spinal epidural hematoma extending from D4 to D8 level.they operated me by laminectomy from D4 to D8 and evacuated the clotted hematoma.however i got no recovery and still i am on a wheel chair.i dont now the medical language but i can tell you that the day i got paralysed i had no sensations and movements under my chest.that time i had no bowl tone.but in these three years i got some changes which are as
1. i have bowl tone,even i cannot control or feel the function.
2. i have an unknown sensation down to the toe which helps me know that this is my left leg or right but i cannot move them.
3. with this sensation when i try to move my legs they move very little or any part of the muscle moves,but i feel as in all this process i become tired and even get swetened.
4. when any part of my leg is pricked , it moves harshly but i don t feel the pain.sometimes i get numbness in my right leg and also muscular pain which is uncontrolled and goes by to much massage.
now i want your opinion that what is the real problem and its treatment. thanks.
