The Leg Is Still Weak After The Pinched Nerve Surgery?
Noon … I had an accident about 7 months ago, from the waist down it was difficult to move. In the diagnosis I had a pinched nerve and an MRI check was recommended for surgery. And after the operation there was a little change, but my leg was still weak and there was no strength. Never mind standing, even small movements are very difficult. But for the feeling in the feet like there is a feeling of soreness, and when the toes are massaged the foot reflex immediately moves. Will my leg heal again?
Hello Malik, Thank you for the question.
The accident you experienced can cause injury to the spinal cord. The spinal cord plays a role in transmitting signals from the brain throughout the body and vice versa. Any damage to the spinal cord can cause disruption in bodily functions depending on where the injury occurred. Damage to the spinal cord can cause disturbances in sensory (feeling) and motor (body movement) abilities. Some of the symptoms that can appear in sufferers of spinal cord injury are paralysis (in both arms and legs, on the legs only, the inability to feel touch / hot / cold on the limbs, headaches, respiratory problems, difficulty controlling bladder or bowel movements, and others) .
Patients with spinal cord injuries must be treated immediately so that recovery takes place faster and the risk of complications is lower. Answering your question is not easy, as the healing process depends on the severity of the injury, the speed at which the injury was initially treated, and the rehabilitation process. To overcome this condition, it is recommended that you take physiotherapy to train your leg muscle strength and restore the motion function of your legs. The physiotherapy process that is carried out may also take a long time until your condition can recover, it can take up to 1-2 years. Therefore, it takes patience and a strong commitment to undergo this rehabilitation process.
Hopefully this information is useful.
