Re: Foot drop
I've had the foot drop and glad to say that mine is much better. It did get worse immediately following my 10 level fusion back in December. Once my fusion was done and some scar tissue removed fromthe dorsal dura and bilateral laminotomies redone at these levels opening and meticulously cleaning additional space since I have arthritis, and a number of spinal problems. Thankfully, I was on a walker for nearly 3 months which helped insure that I didn't stumble and fall with this foot drop, along with made walking less jarring to all this hardware. Sure hope that your doc and do something, especially for the pain. At least my foot drop is on the foot where I have numb toes, and I didn't have pain.
I also tend to build up a lot of scar tissue, which has caused additional surgeries in other areas in ,u past. Thankfully, since I've been seeing this ortho spine specialist he has been using Adcon-L gel which helps reduce internal scarring in spine surgeries even with 8 spine surgeries, none were for removing scar tissue. There are other gel's and at the moment I cannot think of the names, as this one and the one for abdominal surgeries stick in my mind. I'm sure that you can find other names with a web search, but this may be something you will want to discuss with your doctors if any additional surgery is discussed at any point.
Best wishes, and I hope you will let us know what you find out and how you are doing.
