Is there anyone out there that has had foot drop after having back surgery? And who has filed a lawsuit and won. Because right now I am really upset with my doctor. He said the surgery went very well and he was baffled as to why I had foot drop , And after many phones calls to his office. I finally got him to send me for an EMG, And it showed I have nerve damage from my knee down, And now he wants to turn me back over to my family doctor. His assistant tells me I'll just have to wait and see if the feeling comes back in my foot. And I was also told by my Physical Therapist there was nothing else she could do after she looked at the results of my EMG.
