My father had cervical stenosis with compression at 4 levels. 15 days before he had an injury and was getting worse. 5 days before he informed me about urinary and facecal retention. I took him to doctor immediately. The spine surgeon did a corpuscomy with fusion on his 2 levels where compression was maximum. When he woke up after surgery his legs were paralyzed. He could only feel touch but can't move them. His arms also became weak and he couldn't move his fingers.
He had little weakness in his arms and medium weakness in his legs before surgery. But he was able to perform daily activities.
Now its 3 days after surgery and my dad has shown no improvement. The doctor said that this will go with time and this happened because a great pressure had been relieved of his nerves and its vascularity has been affected.
Does this usually happen ? Doctor denies any nerve damage. Please help doctors from India usually lie and don't report real issue.
I'm really worried.
