HI, I also have foot drop after having back surgery 5 years ago. My left side is weak and I walk with a limp. I do use a cane if doing a lot of walking. I went to physical therapy and that did help strengthen my leg and foot but I will never be the same.
I found an exercise DVD called Yoga for the Rest of Us, and it helps me with trying to keep my leg and food stronger.
It is a big adjustment that is for sure. I used to love to walk and now I am in pain if I walk too far. On the other hand, I can walk so I feel that there are a lot of people much worse off then me and I have to be thankful for what I can do. It is not easy though, I long to do the things I once did, but the reality is, never will be like that again.I'm sorry you are also having this problem, but try and strengthen your legs as much as possible so that moving around is not so painful. I hope this was helpful, you are not alone.
