My Friend seem to have exprience leg weakness after surgery..,
it happened after he done a surgery on his back spine because he experience pain in his back after falling down. During that time, he still able to walk properly. But,after surgery been done, the doctor said that there are complication and it seem that they accidently cut nerve connected to the legs.Its has been about 9 years after that happened.

I just wondering is gonna stay like that forever or is he will recover soon and it just a matter of time for that to happen?If that so, how long will it continue till he'll fully recover?

p/s:Hope there will be a positive response soon...
