drop foot

I have a recent foot drop and severe numbness since 8 days.I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and stenosis following a lumbar surgery 20 years ago.

The next day I underwent lumbar fixation but still the foot drop did not heal.

The foot drop duration was only for one day before surgery.

Any one please to share experience and knowledge.

Thank you all.



  • Welcome ramomani we’re glad you’re here!

    I have been lucky to never have drop foot, but my father did, he did recover from it but it took time and physical therapy to get there.

    You are only a little over a week out of fusion surgery, recovery takes time and patience.
