[QUOTE=mom444;3372110]Hello All,

I'm sorry for all of your pain and wish you all the best luck in recovery.

I am here on behalf of my four and a half year old daughter who has had unexplained drop foot for some time now, since she was one and a half.

She had surgery last year to remove scar tissue from her nerve and we just had another EMG today that shows no improvement in the last seven months. We were getting tiny bit of recovery showing up to seven months after her surgery but then it suddenly stopped.

The doctors now want to tell us to give up hope of any more recovery. I hope and pray they are wrong.

As for tendon transfers, were have been told they are not a good idea for younger children because they could cause problems with growth.

We have been doing threshold electrical stimulation at night for the muscles.

I'm very upset today and I'm crying.

I'd like to join your discussion to offer and share advice.[/QUOTE]

[COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Arial"][B]Oh Mom444, I really wish that I had some really good advice for you. My heart breaks for you and all I can say is that I hope that y'all never give up hope. And by all means, cry when you need to. I've shed some tears mainly out of frustration. I refuse to give up hope myself.

I'm just so sorry that your baby is going through this. However, I can't help but think about how resilient children are. I wouldn't be surprised in the least to come back on this board to read your post telling us that there has been improvement. Please don't give up hope. Y'all are in my prayers.

Take care,
Rebecca in Texas[/B][/FONT][/COLOR]
