    Hi Doctor, It’s good to see that you are working on spinal surgeries. I am an Engineer and lives in Pakistan, Asia. I would like to ask something about my Cousin’s Wife (Name: Zaib Siddiqui). Her L3 and L4 Spinal bones are cracked and due to this she can’t move her lower limbs. There is a slight movement in her right leg and left is not moving. She got shot at the back 3 weeks earlier, since then her CSF is leaking. Doctor said, they will stop the CSF from being leaked and will undergo a surgery that will remove some debris from her L3 and L4 bones. But the movement of limb will remains the same. Please reply, I want to share further more. Thank you regards AQ Siddiqui.

    “Spinal bones being cracked” could mean a recent fracture with paralysis, isthmic spondylolisthesis, spina bifida (congenital) or others.I need to know the history of this disorder. Did you cousin’s wife have the ability to walk and then lose it after an accident or infection or was she born this way?

    The CSF leak after an injection is normally not too serious and a procedure called a blood patch can take care of this.
