Hi-I'm new to this forum. Two weeks ago I had a laminectomy microdiscectomy and bone spur removal. Prior to the surgery,I had severe sciatic pain in the left leg. Post surgery, most of the pain is gone, but I'm using a cane to walk. As a matter of fact, I cannot walk without the cane. I can stand on my toes and have no problems with the heels of my foot. However, my left leg doesn't appear to support my weight. I cannnot push off when attempting to take the first step without support, either from the cane or wall or some other assistive device. Has anyone had this problem? Is there some hope? So far, no PT has been recommended by my neurosurgeon.
