Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your brother-in-law's symptoms.
We require more details regarding his surgery. What was the diagnosis prior to the surgery done on his spine?
Also, for imbalance, we also need to evaluate his brain by doing a brain MRI
. Blood clots
in brain (infarcts) can also cause imbalance while walking.Physiotherapy
with gait and balance training would help in recovery.
I hope my reply has helped you.
I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
