Clonus After a Spinal Cord Surgery

My 66 year old Father had his spinal cord (neck)decompressed and fused after experiencing severe loss of mobility and weakness. My question is will the Clonus subside with time or is this something he will fight from now on. He is slowly regaining strength and some mobility BUT the clonus is hindering his progress. He is afraid to walk without his Therapist as he might fall due to the Clonus being so severe. He was experiencing the Clonus before he had surgery, and it got a lil better post surgery while in the rehab. Then after he went home it increased. He is on a medication for the Clonus, but it doesn't seem to be doing much good.
