I am replying to my own post. Now that the Arachnoiditis has been diagnosed for some time, we are seeing it's affects. Neurosurgeon said sorry, nothing can be done for this disorder. Pain management. So we have continued with pain management. Now on Gabapentin, Tramadol, Baclofen (for muscle spasms in legs and feet) and a small dose of Percocet. Stool softeners and laxatives are a daily regimen. Now incontinent of bowel and bladder. On the good side, he is able to sleep 5 hours sometimes 7 hours a night. Not sure where we are going to be next year. I don't know how long I can stay as a caregiver, especially if he becomes non-mobile. He is using a rolling walker, has aids on toilet and bed. Has had 3 falls in the past 6 mo. but I feel the walker is helping to stop the falls. He has received some home health visits for the past 6 weeks, but that has run out. Not a pretty picture. Learning to live with the unknown.
