Recovery from bacterial spinal meningitis ?
Hi doctor, I was diagnosed w/ bacterial spinal meningitis and epidural abscess in April 2010. I had lower back surgery to remove the "puss pocket". I suffer numbness from the waist down and still have back pain. What is the expected recovery? Will I have back pain for the rest of my life? Will most of the numbness go away? I am also incontinent both bladder and bowel, will this repair itself?
