I have severe spasticity in my lower left limb due to a tbi. A split tendon transfer is not an option, is an amputation a plausible next step?
Unlikely.: It sounds like your spasticity is so tight that it is focal rigidity and is refractory to other treatments. Although the answer is complicated, for brevity, it is unlikely that spasticity producing pain, skin breakdown, or some other secondary effect will require an amputation. In addition, if pain is a problem, you may end with phantom pain thus compounding your problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

For lower limb spasticity, are there any other injectables available besides Botox? I also do not like the idea of the baclofen pump.

Post-meningitic: TB affects multiple areas and can damage the nervous system by both direct damage and vasculitis of penetrating vessels from the meninges to the brain resulting in infarcts (killing of brain cells). This is not generally fully reversible and must be treated symptomatically. The only person who can determine what is necessary is the neurologist seeing her. Stick with them and be hopeful. ...Read more
