Drop foot
May 12, 2017
... I have had two back surgeries. The first one was to remove a cyst between L4-L5. Then almost two years ago I developed drop foot to go along with all my back pain. I had a laminectomy from L3 down to S1 and a fusion of L4-L5. My drop foot slowly got better. My question is in the foot I had drop foot in I have noticed lately the foot is pigeon toed when it walk. Has anyone had... (1 replies)

... Hi All, This is my first post. I am new to this forum. In 2009 I broke my back falling from my horse. Following that accident I had a fusion, laminectomy, discectomy (all lumbar), neurostimulator implant, neurostimulator surgery to correct a problem, and finally another fusion in the L4-S1 area (Feb 2016). I was relatively pain free after years of debilitating sciatica. ... (3 replies)
... Thank you for responding! My first surgery was a laminectomy/discectomy in August of 2016, second surgery was a revision laminectomy/discectomy, and third was a revision laminectomy/discectomy fusion done in February of 2017, with pedicle screws put in place on both sides of the L4 and L5 vertebrae, and some kind of bone growth power put around the area. yes with...

... Hi Glen, I'm Joy. I see that you recently had a laminectomy. I too had it done recently, on January 12th. 6 weeks ago. Feels like it was done yesterday. I was wondering how you feel now, with a few more weeks under your belt. Are you allowed to start PT and do some exercising yet? My next appointment is March 12th. which will be at my 8 week mark. I hoping to start PT,... (2 replies)
... You might want to think about getting a second opinion from a fellowshiptrained orthopedic spine surgeon. Their training is similar to the neurosurgeon but sometimes they have a different way of resolving issues. It would be helpful to know a bit more about the period after the laminectomy. When did this "new" pain begin to develop? You said you didn't have it prior to... (23 replies)
... It seems unusual that your new pain started after your laminectomy and cyst removal, but yet you're being told its unrelated. It might be a good idea to ask another NS and see if he agrees. ... (23 replies)
... PapaBill- Sounds like we we're having the same type of problems with the cysts. However, my NS told me that the chances of the cyst returning were very slim. That contradicts what I'm reading from several people on these boards. I was told the laminectomy (bone removal) had to be done to gain access to the cyst. I asked the NS would anything be done to replace the section of... (23 replies)
... Welcome to the board. Unfortunately synovial cysts can and do come back. There is also the possibility that the laminectomy has caused a bit of instability which is causing some spinal nerve irritation or compression. ... (23 replies)
... I had a laminectomy procedure done back in September of 2016 to remove a large synovial cyst in my L/5 disc that was compressing the nerves going down the left side of my body. The surgery went fine according to my NS, and for the most part I am pain free on that side of my body. However, 4 months post surgery and now I am having the same, if not worse pain on the opposite... (23 replies)
... Welcome to the board. First, I think the question is: do you need a fusion? I think that needs to be decided before you consider which procedure would be best for your body and your symptoms. Do you have sciatic pain? Has the cyst grown back? What was the location of the laminectomy? (1 replies)
... From Laminectomy with synovial cyst removal to Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion I am a Flight Attendant injured my back in 2014 because of turbulence Long story short, had a LSCR, cured my syatica left leg. Then started having pain in right side hip a Lumbard 5 6. After 2 years and still not returning to my job, the 3rd surgeon advice is to do a Direct Lateral Interbody... (1 replies)
... Welcome to the board. Did the Medrol pack help any? You say your leg was "crippled" prior to surgery? What do you mean by that and what is going on with it now? While it is frustrating that people with legitimate pain are having trouble getting the drugs they need due to opiate abuse, it is doubtful something stronger would make a difference to you. Opioids are not... (2 replies)

... Welcome to the board. Sorry no one responded to you sooner. Hope you are still around and reading! It sounds like you had a fusion along with the laminectomy. Is that correct? All the suggestions I would have made are rather pointless since you just saw your surgeon and had an MRI, and things appear to be in place and adjacent areas are good. Did he have any thoughts...
