    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Cauda Equina Syndrome is a very
    rare condition. It occurs when the lower spinal cord is compressed
    enough to cause bowel & bladder problems. The compression can be due
    to a variety of reasons (from trauma to a disc herniation to a
    congenital defect - and sometimes a combination of things).

    Fortunately most disc herniations are not going to cause cauda
    equina syndrome - and as such are able to be managed conservatively.

    Hope you are recovering well, and I'm glad to see you back
    posting on a regular basis!

    U\I know ALL about it. It can also--rarely--cause total bilateral Class A
    paralysis.

    Which is what happened to me.

    Another rarity: there was a 7% chance that I'd walk again. I'm now pl;aying
    golf again....I figure that racquetball's maybe 3 months away yet. And I stand
    up most of the time on gigs now, instead of sitting...

    I lucked out.

    Oh, they corrected/decompressed it by doing 3 1/2 laminectomies and a stenosis
    open-up all at once.

    I'm glad to hear of your recovery. That's great that you're
    back on the golf course. If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, we'll
    go hit the linx. :) (Of course, I'm assuming that you'll be buying
    the first round of bloody marys afterward). <G>


    Take care,



    Atlas

    YOU get bloody Marys BEFORE we tee off.

    I'll have mine after the 18th.....

    Match play.

    I got an idear. We'll play "beer golf". You gotta chug a
    beer at each hole. I figure the front 9 will be loads of fun. By the
    middle of the back 9, things are likely to start getting waaaaaaay out
    of control. <GGG>

    The crucial thing in such a match is to know where the other guy is hitting
    from at ALL times....
