Spinal Cord Disorders Message Board


Spinal Cord Disorders Board Index


Welcome to the board. I'm sorry your symptoms were not relieved right after surgery. I imagine your surgeon has been telling you that it can take time for the nerves to heal after they have been compressed, and after the trauma of the surgery itself.

How long ago was the surgery? Oh, I see, about one month ago? You may still have some swelling going on which could be enough to continue the symptoms of numbness. Have you spoken to the surgeon about this, and your concerns?
They might be able to give you a steroid medication like prednisone to reduce swelling, if that is a possibility of a cause of your symptoms.

Otherwise, all I can say is to give it time and try to stay calm and positive. The best healing occurs when we are calm and relaxed!

With my lumbar surgery, it took about 18 months for my numbness to come out of my toes and feet.
