Hi all. Hope my post find everyone having a good evening. I need to ask for some thoughts on my on going problem. Since returning home from my lumbar surgery I have been dropping my drinking glass constantly. My carpet looks like a war zone. I didn't have this symptom before surgery. Trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Anyone else having this problem?


  • I hope you see your Dr. about this problem. Are you on muscle relaxants still? I noticed I was dropping things while on flexeril. I know having surgery in one area of the spine can cause stress on the other parts of the spine but like Paul says in like words we can only speculate on your problem but you may need further tests. Take care. Charry
