So, I went to the Neurosurgeon's today to see the Physician's Assistant. My Neurosurgeon wasn't there, but they wanted me to come in ASAP.
He said that he isn't sure the weakness in my right leg and right foot would go away, that it could possibly end up being permanent. He did the normal strength tests and said there is a significant amount of weakness, but it's not completely dead. If it were, he'd have me in surgery tomorrow. But he said since there is a little strength there, that he wants me to come in to see my surgeon on Thursday and see what she thinks.... And to be prepared for possible surgery on Friday. The other surgeon who looked at my films with the P.A. agrees that if it doesn't get better, it should not be left until October 16 (my fusion date). I'm supposed to finish the steroids and then take 800mg of motrin three times a day. So basically if it doesn't get better I'm looking at another microD on Friday, and then having my fusion on October 16, as planned. But apparently I reherniated L4-L5 when I was bending too far shaving my legs... So that was what I felt give in my back. Gotta get up now though, numb foot! Lol.
