Talk to Surgeon: If this weakness was present at the ned of your operation, and has continued unchanged since 2004 there may be little to do. If this is new in onset i would consult your surgeon to discuss treatment options.

be evaluated: Consider being thoroughly evaluated. Some causes of weakness may be easily corrected and if not corrected may lead to more problems, while other causes may not have any real good options. Usually a detailed history, exam, and appropriate imaging studies can determine the cause, prognosis, and treatment options. Thank you.
