Hello Dr Faisal here,
I have read and understood your query, i am wondering that expected result of operation were not there. then next step is to find cause of this paraparesis, all drugs you have mentioned are neurotonics like they just guve a little help until and unless the definitive problem is caught and removed.numbness means your sensory system and spasticity means your motor system both are involved, along with constipation , means a neurogenic rectum. you need to go ahead for a fresh MRi of whole spine and brain too.inflammatory conditions of brain and spinal cord cant be ruled out. (a few autoantibody tests are done)

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take Care
Regards.
