OK Geraldine. While the problem may be irreparable, I think you need another surgical opinion after some very specific tests like a myelogram of the spine. There may be still a surgical problem that can be remedied to get pressure off the nerves and allow them to heal. A university medical center's neurological surgery department would be the place to call for a consultation--here's a link to one
