Question Foot drop after L5-S1 disectomy😞

Last may i herniated a disc in my back. It was a large one with severe sciatic pain down right leg. i did physical therapy and had 2 epidural injections. But the pain was so bad after 6 months i has a lumbar discectomy at L5-S1. the sciatic is better but i woke up with severe numbness and foot drop. Most of the numbness is gone and i can move my foot and toes but still have problems. Ive had 2 mris post op and the surgeon says im a puzzle. Not what u want to hear from your doc! He says they look good and the area affected should be a L4-L5 injury. Im still in physical therapy and get discouraged it will never get back to normal. Has this happened ro anyone else?
