Has anyone experience after laminectomy surgery of the on L4 and L5 to have a balance and foot drop issues? I had a MRI of the lower lumbar and revealed serious stenosis of the L4 and L5 and the surgery went well because I have no pain. However after surgery I'm having a serious balance problem and foot drop in my left leg. I had a second MRI of the lower lumbar section and L3 has compromised some nerves in the area. My neurosurgeon thinks that if I have miminal invasive surgery on L3 It will improve my balance and foot drop problem. Is there anyone that had imbalance or foot drop after lumbar surgery?Welcome to Spine-Health
