Have fusion on L5S1 on January 14, 2010. I seem to be doing better than i expected. Have been off pain meds almost 2 weeks now and am now driving where ever I want (yay!!). My problem is that ever since I woke up from surgery I have not been able to lift the toes on my right foot (I've heard it's called foot drop?). The NS refered me to PT, today was my first day and OMG I feel so sore! Is that normal? Any suggestions on the foot drop? I'm so frustrated that I can't get moving quicker...guess I've never really had much patience.
