Cool balance problems due to spinal compression

was wondering if any one out there has had
balance problems and/or numbness in legs due to compression of the spinal cord, had an acdf with own bone and plating done in jan.,,,i know if the compression gets too severe(myelopathy) these symptoms can occur,,,was just wondering if anyone regained their walk (gait) back later on down the road,,,,,thank you,,br
