Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I want to know your detailed clinical history, your relevant investigations, your treatment records till now. It helps me to better understand your condition and prescribe accordingly. Please also mention your co-morbid conditions and drug allergy. You have mentioned that you were operated for some c3/4 issue but I would need to see details of treatment including your discharge summary, if possible. Liofen is a medication given for spasticity, so I need to know whether you still have spasticity or difficulty in walking etc? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
