I blew an disc and went in for a nice ACC funded operation to get it fixed

LITTLE DID I KNOW WTF Anachroiditis was but 2 weeks after the operation I went down hill

Finally I had another MRI scan and this funny Anachroiditis word was on there. 6 months later and now I can hardly walk. My bladder has shut down and all sorts of wierd and wonderful stuff is happening to the point I will need a wheel chair very soon

I dont know how bad some of yas get this but it is getting to the point from crying each morning when I cant walk to my morphine supply that suicide even looks like an option (naaa I wont ... love wife and kids too much)

thanks for all the info

Pain, STRESS AND ACUTE ACCITIS WILL DO THAT EVERY TIME.
Hang in there as we all must and with a little help from our fellow sufferes we will offset some of the misery back on the perpetrators of the fraud that is being perp[etrated in the name of being *covered by ACC The Absolutely Corrupt Corporation

Catharsis


When things are grim and and getting grimmer,
where once one went with ebb and flow,
Now no light ahead does glimmer,
We cry out our Catharsis and grow.

When loved ones die we have our cry.
Then when all is done, we get on with our lives.
In times of strife and others prefer our ego dies
Catharsis leads us to the light.

When others try to make our rights die
Comes a time we stand and fight
Catharsis comes, we cry,
and get on doing, for us what's right.

you need to get something sorted and that did you have the disease before your operation.

Your MIR did it show that the opperation did not cause any more damage. Sit their and ACC will kick you off saying that the opperation has fixed the disc and all of your problems is for a new disease that as far as I know takes years to develope.

Of cause the reader of the MIR may be blind or smoking pot.

Dopel, Arachnoiditis comes as a result of the spinal operation, it is an invasion of a bacteria which can come from dirty instruments to the rubber gloves the surgeon wears , or to any other thing used to invade the spinal cavity.
This actually should be medical misadventure an d I hope Scott is persuing it.
If not, Scott, go to your GP and get an ACC45 and make it official medical misadventure.

An MRI shows up arachnoiditis so ACC have all the proof they need for your claim.
I am really sorry for you, this is a tragedy. Are you being referred to a Specialist for an assessment and any treatment that can be given??
You have gone downhill fast!!

As I understand it achronitis, can be because of myodil diye being used in xrays that require a die ti highliht definition of injured area,
or have I got it wrong.

If not when did you have xrays done or had myodil dyes used by hospital radiology.

if I am right then the die is causing the achronitis and there for it is injuty and valid claim from that date and if it was done because of a claimable injury then it has to be same claim as far as erc and benifits and achronitis is result from misadventure because of the original injury.

I would suggest that you get a copy of All your hospital files and notes immediately and see if myodil was used. if so then acc cannot say was pre existing as they seem to be trying on.

Make my head spin so that is why it is so attractive for ACC to spin it further and exit many and fight the last standing into giving up because of inability to fight in the courts at their level.

thanks sparrow for that . I would say that it is a fancy name for an infection and it would be affecting all muscles around were the surgery took place.

Medical misaventire will put the problem right back into the ACC lap.

:wub: Hi everyone ...

Check out what Gaffa09 has been saying about Myodil.

There is an Australian website about this stuff.


;) Happy researching ...

Would I be right in saying that since the introduction of MRI's, that the myodil dye is not used so often?
From what I have been told by a sufferer, it is not only the dyes used but any other bacteria that is introduced when the spinal cavity is invaded in surgery
This danger is not normally discussed with the spinal injury victim when an operation is suggested.
Thanks Gaffa for all the research you have done and I hope Scott is a little bit more educated as to the horrible disease he now has.
Go for Medical misadventure Scott!

Myelograms and Radiculagrams [same thing]
The process is used to take a x-ray photograph of the spinal cord, following administration of a radiopaque substance into the spinal subarachnoid space
Discograms and other spinal investigations
This dye was to be stopped being used in the mid eighties
Radiologists today use opaque substance's to do a similar thing when doing a MRI,mine was injected into my arm
Have read of someone having a myelogram in wellington around 2002
Sadly in my case I was totally uninformed about the operation and the risks associated with it,same for dye tests,before MRI
Scott hang in there man and get a specialist to do an independant assessment of your situation,dont let acc take control of it either as they will try to do

Greetings,
Myodil is STILL IN USE...
The older oil based compound was banned mid 80's...
3 year shelf life... and it was used here in NZ after the ban...
I think what is used now is a water based compound.
EITHER WAY, it does DAMAGE.
May not cause Arachnoiditis...
BUT the substance is CORROSIVE,
and can damage nerve fibers.
Use your imagination to what problems this can cause...
NOT GOOD... and is hard to pin down / prove.

And................hubby had cobalt ray treatment in PN in around Oct 75 to add to the insult to the body......radioactive dye was injected into the blood stream so the lymph system could be check ad finitum......still there.....No 32 years later.......Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia - said to be the result of same.......try and prove it???? Probably couldn't....but all the same.....its not nice. The bloody radioactive stuff and the radio therapy.....that is acknowledged as a common factor in this very uncommon cancer. Double banger.

Hey..........this stuff changes the structures in the bodies DNA.

A thought.....would DNA testing now still be able to prove he was the natural sire of my children? Just as well we don't need to try and find out eh?

Thats bloody medicine for you......now, of course, he needs very expensive medicine to enable him, according to the drs any sort of future.

Gloria.

Yup it was all as a result of the discectomy operation
I have never had the die job or anything like it
I had an MRI before the operation and there is NO Arachnoiditis in those images and this has been confirmed by the spinal specialist.
The Arachnoiditis shows up in the 2nd MRI I had after the operation and is from L3/4 (operation site) down past L4/5
The specialist the recommended I have another operation to clear the exit of the nerve roots from L3/4 and L4/5. He said it would do nothing for the Arachnoiditis pain but would remove some of the sciatic pain I was getting in my left butt and thigh. I had this operation and he was 100% correct as this pain is now gone but what did happen is the Arachnoiditis got 200% worse and 4 days after the operation I came down with a bad infection and spent 2 weeks in the public hospital on antibiotics/morphine/ketermine drip
Since the 2nd operation I am now on the verge of not being able to walk. My nerves to my bladder have shut down as well and I am unable to pee without great difficulty and cannot feel how full my bladder is. I have since been admitted twice to hospital with the first signs of cauda equina syndrome.

so all up it has been 6 months from my first operation to where I am today so it is BL**DY FAST. every week I am getting worse.

Thanks ALL for your comments and thoughts .... I have got a LOT of information out of this forum

Ka kite anu
Scott
