The syrinx is a hole in my spine. I had two surgeries done to fix it. In the first one, they used a piece of plastic to keep my brain from blocking my spinal cord. But the plastic created scar tissue. So for the second surgery, they grabbed some skin from my leg to replace it.
A big issue that I have due to the syrinx is not being able to feel sensation, like is the water too cold or too hot or just right. The feeling for water temperature has diminished
Another big issue is describing the pain is when I feel pain. It is difficult to describe what is happening in my body because I can’t always tell. It is not easy dealing with these two issues.
