I had surgery to untether my tethered spinal cord in 2004. Now I am having problems with my left leg. I experience sharp pain in the hip joint where my leg connects to my body. This leg is generally weaker than the other and often times I tend to drag that leg. I also have an area the size of my fist on my lower back below my surgery site that is completely numb. I am wondering if my spinal cord could have retethered.
