Is it normal?

I just had a 3 level ACDF and Corpectomy on June 3rd. I have been trying to take a short walk several times a day. I have noticed that I am catching or somewhat dragging my left foot to the point if not careful I could actually trip and fall. I am wondering if this is normal and should not be overly concerned. Also I do feel somewhat lethargic but assume this is about all the pain medications.

Prior to my surgery this would happen to me on a rare instance and definately not this pronounced. I thought maybe it was because I am so exhausted.

Should I be concerned?

    You are so recently from surgery, I would not take a chance.
    I would definitely tell doctor and let him guide you or reassure you.

    Even if normal for some, may not be normal for you.
    Best wishes!
