Could anyone please give me any advice as I really don’t know what to do.3 months ago I had a discectomy L3/L4 as I could no longer bear the pain and also developed slight foot drop. Straight after waking I had lost feeling in my right foot but was told it was quite normal and would take time. I was allowed home the same day but after a few days the pain was so bad my gp telephoned the hospital with concerns regarding how numb and cold my right foot was. I received a call to go into hospital to have it checked and was told again that it was quite normal for this to happen but they would like to keep an eye on it I would also be referred for some physio .I was put on crutches to help me walk has I had know balance. After 2 visits to physio I was told there wasn’t anything more they could do. To cut a long story short I had the surgery on the 30th of august and I had a follow up appointment last week where I was told they don’t know what’s going on or what to do and I need yet another MRI scan which is a 5 week waiting list. I am know different now to what I was a week after the surgery I am still on crutches as I have no control at all with my right foot. I am now thinking about visiting my gp to see if I can be referred to a different hospital as I just don’t know what else to do. Please could anybody advice me.
