Question: Pain returns after tethered spinal cord surgery?
In 2009, I had a surgery of a tethered spinal cord, with a lipoma of the filum terminalle.
A few months ago, I started having strong back pain again, headaches (diagnosed as tension headaches), muscle spams in my legs. More recently, i started having a very strong pain in my legs. It is stronger closer to my hips and it extends through my legs.
I haven’t taken an MRI in around 3 years.
Should I go to a neurosurgeon? Do you think my spinal cord has rethered, since i have grown quite a lot since the surgery?
