Harbor Macros: Back Pain


I estimate there is LOW risk for ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM, CAUDA EQUINA SYNDROME, EPIDURAL MASS LESION, SPINAL STENOSIS, OR HERNIATED DISK CAUSING SEVERE STENOSIS, thus I consider the discharge disposition reasonable. We have discussed the diagnosis and risks, and we agree with discharging home to follow-up with their primary doctor. We also discussed returning to the Emergency Department immediately if new or worsening symptoms occur. We have discussed the symptoms which are most concerning (e.g., saddle anesthesia, urinary or bowel incontinence or retention, changing or worsening pain) that necessitate immediate return.
