Drop foot question

... Welcome to the board. It is a good sign. It means that the nerve has some function and is not dead or severed. I hope you have had physical therapy for the foot drop and that you continue to do the exercises every day. ... (2 replies)

... disaster. I finally did fall last week, it had to happen. Thankfully it was just a bruise on my knee but sure shook my self confidence. This happened with the foot brace on!

... One of my friends had an anterior hip replacement as well and developed similar problems. The surgeon lengthened his hip about 5-7mm, so after going back and changing his length, the issue resolved over a few days and he's doing great now. Might want to ask about your leg length and offset. One thing I've learned is that while Anterior approach is a great approach however,... (5 replies)
... my foot. My surgeon was Mr. Pollyanna, saying all would be fine. At the 4 month point he's backed off and saying things like, a lot of folks don't recover from drop foot. He is very puzzled this happened with a hip replacement coming in from the front of the body. Seems it does happen with the backside approach. ... (5 replies)

... ing is still ongoing and will take all the improvement I can get. As for a "full" recovery, in my case, I have gained enough function to drive and walk without a brace and not to think about drop foot anymore, but the former drop foot foot is somewhat weaker and still has odd sensations of tightness and pulling. ...

... Sorry you've had such a hard time of it these past eighteen months. If you look at my previous posts you will know that I had drop foot after a broken leg and that I had nerve release surgery, which really helped in my case. ... (42 replies)

... lers for 7 months. During that time I tried to walk every day with a walker. The walker was unsuccessful as it caused my ankle to twist. I then went onto the AFO brace which ended up weakening my right ankle. ... (6 replies)

The Otto Bock Carbon brace is completely flat and does not surround or compress the foot in any way, so even if your foot turns inward, the brace would permit it to do so, while still supporting your heel and ankle and as much of the foot that stayed on the brace. ... (6 replies)
... Yes, I have drop foot resulting from the surgery. None of the braces work for me because my left foot turns inward toward the left and the brace and shoe go to the right. I have an appt with the DOc. in DEc. for an EMG and hopefully decompression and or tendon transfer. ... (6 replies)
... it's difficult to know from your description exactly what is interfering with your ability to walk. Do you need an AFO to walk because your foot turns inward, or do you need an AFO because you cannot dorsiflex, or lift up your foot when you walk. ... (6 replies)
... As for the shoe and brace issues, they are a real pain. ... (42 replies)
