Determine The diagnosis, Select The Treatment!
Lebaran this year we had the opportunity friendship to Mr. Ridwan age of 50 years who wanted to share his story to us.
I first felt the pain in 2014 before the fasting month. Pain that I feel is of low back pain radiating to the right foot down. This pain is not felt during activity but when used the break then felt. Because of the pain that would not go away and I was very disturbing to my health check to a local doctor in my town, and is said to be part of a trapped nerve. My outpatient treatment for 3 months. Was improving but relapsed again, I was trying to physiotherapy and alternatives was conducted activity back but again relapsed again, and this time was the treatment that I live requires me to do a photo MRI on the spine because my mobility is declining dramatically even sleep on their backs too sick.
MRI photo was ever taken, the results of the photo there was a tumor in my lower spine and was advised by my doctor to doctor to Eko Agus Subagio in Surabaya Siloam Clinic Spine. And it is true the results read Eko was the same doctor. Eko doctors recommend surgery. I also took time to establish itself and operating on the day of my birthday. Thank God the operation runs smoothly. I was hospitalized for a week and the rest a week at home to recuperate. After that I went back to work as usual. Although at work, my friends did not prevent me from lifting heavy things but I want to go back to normal crate. Therefore I keep practicing. I could feel the complaint in the joints of fingers after surgery but it turned out to be due to cholesterol and uric acid. After the consumption of drugs and diet, such complaints are gone.
Hopefully my story can help provide useful information, if it does not go dissipate the pain I would advise my friends to MRI it first, get a proper diagnosis and then choose the appropriate treatment. Thanks.
