Thank you Dr Corenman, I do the L5 Heel walk daily to make sure I’m not getting a drop foot.
The Dermatomal numbness is intermittent through L4-S1 which I find wierd. There is no Myotomal weakness but there is diminished L5-S1 deep tendon reflex but has been for a long time.
What would the recovery time be estimated at after TLIF until I could manually adjust and work with patients would you think?
I can still exercise but not run which I used to love because of symptoms later in the day which is mainly compression in low back from impact.
Thank you in advance for your speedy replies.
