Had acdf (C6/7) on 3/26 and am recovering nicely from surgery. What drove me to the hospital was the inability to walk properly. I noticed weakness in my hands but was more concerned about the lack of coordination in my lower body. It really concerned me because I am a group fitness instructor and was no longer able to propel myself forward or dance! I had no idea that my spinal cord was compressed for 3 weeks before surgery. My question is: has anyone else experienced this lack of coordination and did it resolve after surgery? I know it is not even 2 weeks post surgery but I am curious if my function will improve. I noticed that I walk better now but still have problems with foot placement and balance.
