my uncle had a decompression of cervical spine.i don't know about which disc was decompressed.but he was operated about three weeks ago.he also had severe prostate problem but hasn't gone for operation only treated it through medicines.a couple of days before the spine operation his urine completely stopped.he totally dependent,wasn't abl eto walk or change clothes even,considering it depression and tension we couldn't decipher it and didn't linked it with spine.
after the operation he is on catheter and able to walk little and slowly do small stuff like wearing shoes etc. couple ofdays back he realised that he couldn't sense the pressure on bowels and he is unable to pass stool.after some medicines he had a huge motion on bed ,he had not control over it .he had no sensitivity when he had to pass stool.we had talked to some doctors about it and they suggest that this is because of the operation and a second opinion must be obtained from the doctor who operated it.
the doctor has now given him cartizone and said that this will release any pressure on the nerve and he will be fine.
MY question is that his excretory system is paralysed now, urine as well as stool,is this really because of any nerve damage during the spine operation or is this something else .what would u suggest and have u encountered such case before? what are the chances of recovery.will he be able to pass stool naturally, with sensation and control over bowels.
thanks

Spine is a sort of a link between all body muscles and brain – when that link is interrupted, like when the nerves are pressed to the bone, the brain can no longer signal to the rest of the body what it needs to do. So, after most spinal surgeries there is some level of changed functions and bladder and bowel control are among the most often ones that diminish. The fact that your uncle couldn’t urinate even before surgery, together with important signs like difficult motion tells that the spinal nerves were already somewhat injured. But, now, after the surgery, the pressure on the nerves should be released and cortisone definitely is going to help to reduce the swelling so there really is a chance that it will get better and that this will not be permanent. But, it will take some time.
