cauda equina syndrome

Hello, Iím brand new hear and looking for info/advice for my dog. I have an 11.5 year old Boxer named Julie. She has been having a lot of issues lately. Our vet has just diagnosed her with cauda equina syndrome & I'm little confused & donít know if any of you may have some experience with this.

The vet's diagnosis is coming from her weakness in the back legs & her loss of control over her bladder and occasionally bowels especially when sleeping. The only outcomes I have seen with this revolve around the dog having surgery but with her age & the fact that she is not doing that great surgery would not be a good option. What happens if this condition goes untreated is my biggest question.

Any advice/info any of you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!
