Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.That is indeed unfortunate.The nerves supplying your feet are likely getting compressed still.Can be due to the edema or swelling in the spine.You should consider epidural steroid injection in the spine and physical therapy as well.That should improve your symptoms enough to make driving and walking tolerable.Please consult with your surgeon and a pain specialist.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:
