May 10, 2019 · Chronic pain and spinal fusion in Spine Health

I would like help with contacts on Spinal Decompression surgery. I realize this is not Spinal Fusion but this is the first discussion that comes even close that I have seen. Any contact information about Spinal Decompression is much appreciated. My surgery went well but my problem is with my stamina, pain after extended standing and walking ( I still have to depend on a walker more than I would like ).

Years back when my fall first happened I saw a Neurologist and he did some testing (electrical stimulation) and had me do PT.
I have been wearing a fitted brace on my left foot since. The feeling was after the PT I had what I was going to have.
I have had SEVERAL falls over the years and have been fortunate enough to have had no serious injuries.
I have serious back pain (L! through L5) involving my lower spine. It has developed into hip pain as well. I have no idea if these problems could be factor in the Foot Drop.
I am having X-rays and MRI's taken in the next few days. Your reply is my first positive interaction I have had to possible help.
I also have Ankylosing spondylisis. Diagnosed at age 42 current age is 77. Any back X-rays I have had show no fusing to date.

Are their any remedies for Drop-Foot. Caused from a fall, not on a hard surface.
MRI shows problems with Lumbar spine.
Have had for five years.
