disc prolapse


Explanation:
I cannot find this word in any dictionary available. The only thing that comes to my mind is "disc prolapse" which is an often complication following spinal surgery. The other possibility is "rectal prolapse" but I have doubts that it's the case (though who knows?)

agree  Elisabeth Ghysels: it seems extremely (!) unlikely that this word exists (or anything coming close to it); one could immagine ways, how a rectal prolaps can be the consequence of spinal surgery, though. Greetings,

wrinkling/drooping of skin??????


Explanation:
Another complete shot in the dark but the only connection I can make with 'ritido' is with 'rhytid', which in English refers to the wrinkling or drooping of the skin. Could this be a complication?
Good luck and sorry I can't be of more help.

I\'ve just seen that it\'s retidio and not ritidio so maybe you should forget my answer altogether!
