hematoma

Can anyone explain why a hematoma after back fusion (L-4 and 5,s-1) would cause drop foot,which has since improved after second surgery 16 hours later? If the hematoma had been removed within a shorter time span, would my,now permenant,nerve damage be less severe?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
