Thread: How many of us here with Spina Bifida?

  1. #11
    I have SBO as an incidental finding on CT scan at the age of around 30 if I remember correctly.

    I'm currently being worked up to rule out MS after 10 years and brain lesions with most recent attack started this past August at the age of 39.

    yup, I have Spina Bifida along with Hydrocephalus and *Chiaris Malformation which was only diagnosed about 3 years ago*... wheelchair user since birth... no real problems other than the chiaris diagnosis, with exertion headaches. Hasn't gotten worse or anything just stagnated... Must admit i am not educated on these issues, other than how they affect me (very little really) - kinda wish i was, kinda thankful I am not.

    I was born with the closed form. You can see the curve where the opening would have been, but fortunately, mine closed and protected my cord.

    Hello,

    I've just joined and I have Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele (the most severe form) and Chiari 2 (but minimal/no hydroocephelus) I have kyphoscoliosis. My lesion is lumbar but my sensation/function goes at about T6ish.

    It'd be good to get to know some other people!

    Hi Arnold - you'll get far more responses if you post your question in the Relationships and sexuality forum. Also - are you interested in achieving erection or ejaculation/orgasm - two different issues, oddly enough.

    I was born with SBO, fortunately the skin closed and protected the cord. There are bones missing at L4&L5. I've known about it since I was five, when a hairy patch started growing on my back. Over the past four to five years, been dealing with severe back pain, sciatica, and gradual reduction of reflexes in my right leg. FINALLY convinced a country bumpkin doctor (who told me, oh you're fine, it'll work itself out in 4-6weeks )to refer me to Duke in NC, and seeing a pedi neurosurgeon now who dx tethered cord (very visible from their MRI).
