Hi Dr Young
I'm a C 4/5 quad and have recently been
speaking to a doctor about a baclofen pump. Is it true that the baclofen pump catheter does not damage the Pia Mata (skin around spinal-cord) because the catheter is quite small and flexible and just flows up within the intrathecal space? Can you elaborate on this further? Can they cause damage like Morphine pumps at catheter tip? at what spine level are baclofen pumps inserted and thread to? Baclofen pump's inhibit sexual function specifically erections, can someone reduce baclofen pump dosages at certain times to maintain erections when necessary? I have found drugs that reduce spasticity decrease tension in the muscles, which tends to inhibit blood flow and erections is this correct? Some spasticity actually helps erections?

Hello. My husband has CCS from a ski accident. He has a classification of D and injury at C4 and C5. He did not need surgery. One of his major problems is dizziness. It has improved in the 7 months since his accident. Have you ever heard of dizziness from spinal cord injury? We thought this would be temporary and would be better after a few weeks. At first my husband said I looked like I was standing on the wall and he felt he was going to fall out of the bed. Now he is mostly dizzy when he first stand up and walking and mor so on uneven ground.
