L5 Back Surgery

June 30 I had L5 back surgery, came out of surgery ok after the drugs wore off I couldn't use by legs, had intense pain for weeks, was in PT hospital for two weeks and had four weeks of PT after that. Can stand and walk with a cane or walker now, except my legs without warning just give out and I fall flat on my face. The doctor said he doesn't know why,would a EMG help detect a nerve damage?
