I am a 42 year old female who had spinal cord release surgery in 2008. For a while I was much better but recently I have started having same problems as before my surgery. I have severe pain in my left hip and leg especially at night when I lay down. I tend to drag my left leg whenever I walk and my left side is very weak. When I sit for longs periods of time and then try to get up it is painful most times. My left leg also tends to give away as it did before my surgery. Is is possible that my spinal cord has retethered?
