My father has gone cervical laminectomy and also he is recovering from depression due to symptoms of cervical.
But after surgery, now its 3 months, he still feel weak.
He sometimes not able to stand in toilet, when he sits on feet.
Is it will take time?
Or some thing you want to suggest to make weakness improve at faster rate?
Any limb weakness present before
surgery may take upto an year even after adequate surgical decompression.
The duration and degree of recovery also depend on the time lag between onset of symptoms and the surgery.
Expect a good recovery with regular physiotherapy.
Do Take Rehabilitation Exercises from physiotherapist Best wishes.
