Well !i would say it may not get alright on its own.the symptoms you are getting is because of compression, or damage to the nerves during operation. the areas supplied by their respective nerves are showing their respective symptoms. also i fear that your pyramidal tracts(a bunch of nerve fibres) are affected, which needs immediate attention. i may suggest you vitamin B12 Supplementation but GET IN TOUCH WITH THE PERSON WHO OPERATED ON YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE EXPLAINING ALL SYMPTOMS. he can guide you best and may suggest MRI for better picture.also take alternative consultation with your MRI reports if you are not satisfied. good luck! and stay strong!:)
