Psychological Injuries After Cauda Equina Syndrome

cauda-equinaCauda Equina Syndrome regularly results in long-standing physical problems, in turn causing significant psychological harm. If this has happened to you, you could be entitled to claim compensation – not only for the damage that has been done to your physical health, but also to your mental wellbeing.

Why does Cauda Equina Syndrome result in psychological harm?

Cauda Equina Syndrome is a condition which, if not diagnosed and treated in time, will lead to permanent neurological complications. These can include total or partial paralysis of the legs, chronic pain, reduced sensation in the buttocks and genitalia, sexual dysfunction, urinary incontinence and problems with defecation.

Such physical complaints will of course turn someone’s world upside down. He or she will subsequently find it difficult (or even impossible) to work, carry out household chores, walk long distances (if at all), have sex, urinate without a catheter, socialise or continue with their hobbies.

The serious nature of these long-term complications will have devastating impact upon the person’s life, and will undoubtedly have an effect on their family and loved ones. It is not unusual for the strain to become so overwhelming that relationships breakdown altogether.

All this will invariably damage a person’s psychological well-being. It is not unusual for people with cauda equina complications to become depressed and anxious, and many will need to take medication to alleviate the problem.

What if medical professionals are to blame?

Things will be even harder to accept for a patient if medical professionals are to blame for their injuries. This is not uncommon in cases of Cauda Equina Syndrome, where doctors often fail to diagnose and treat the condition in an acceptable amount of time, thereby causing a patient to suffer permanent injury.

If this has happened to you, we understand just how angry you will be feeling. After all, your health will have suddenly deteriorated, leaving you in pain and unable to live your life as you once did. It is also possible that you have been told things will not improve – something which will of course cause you considerable emotional strain.
