Good evening Doctors, I fell from a height of 2 meters more with a sitting down position and then I was taken to the hospital for further examination. On March 17, 2019, I had a PEN installation in my spine, after operating my leg was powered to stand and walking, it’s been almost 2 weeks after surgery my leg is still not powered ..
Hello Attalarick, thank you for asking.
Blunt trauma as you experience it can cause injuries ranging from mild to severe. The severity or severity of the injury depends on the magnitude of the impact your body receives during trauma. Falling from a height in a sitting position is certainly very likely to cause spinal injury. As you know, the spine not only contains bone marrow, but there are also many nerves in it. When the spinal cord is injured, the nerves in that area can be damaged.
Spinal injury can be broken or fractured in the bone, pulmonary hernia, nerve injury, or spinal shock. If the injured spine is a bone that contains nerves for the legs, symptoms can occur as you feel. Nerves can be injured, pinched, or broken. Symptoms depend on the location and severity of the injury. It is also possible that your leg weakness is caused by the injury. In some people, weakness can improve in a few weeks or months. In some others, weakness may also persist. Healing can occur 100% or may not be 100%. You should consult this matter with the treating doctor. Your doctor who is more aware of the condition and course of your injury. You may be advised to routinely do physiotherapy with a chaperone. In addition, you may also be advised to receive occupational therapy, so that you can immediately return productive. Follow the doctor's orders for appropriate therapy, rest, and activity patterns.
Hopefully you can recover from this condition soon. Regards.
