Long-Term Consequences of Cauda Equina Syndrome

If cauda equina syndrome is not treated quickly, the condition will progress to the complete stage, after which the prognosis for recovery is poor.

This is because the nerve roots will have become so damaged that they cannot be repaired. A patient will therefore be left with permanent neurological complications, including:

Have you been affected by cauda equina syndrome?

If you have been left with long-term complications because of cauda equina syndrome, you need to consider why this happened. Some people simply do not seek medical attention in time, presenting to their GP or hospital only when the condition is already complete.

Other times, however, medical professionals fail to diagnose the problem, despite the fact a patient is seeking help for symptoms characteristic of spinal nerve compression. This often occurs because doctors do not suspect a cauda equina lesion and make a misdiagnosis without carrying out further investigative tests. The condition will then only be correctly diagnosed once a patient is experiencing urinary retention.

However, this will prove extremely damaging, as a delay in diagnosis and treatment will lead to residual complications such as those described above. If this is something that has happened to you, you will be in a position to make a claim against the GP or NHS Trust responsible.
