I'm just curious how many of you here have cauda equina and/or conus injuries? How did you get the injury? At what age did you get it and how many years have you got it already? What are the problematic health areas that you have to deal with since the injury? Thanks!

I have damage to the cauda equina at L3(compression fracture) and L5(burst fracture) levels. I got it in Mar 2003 due to a fall from 4 storeys at 22 years of age. I'm 6 years post sci. I have op done in 2003 with L3 anterior corpectomy and ORIF Left tibia. I still have lack of bowel and bladder control (close to 0%). I can walk but I have left foot drop also due to the tibia fracture. When climbing stairs need railing support.
