Re: Drop Foot
Dec 10, 2006
i assume you are having "zingers" which is a good sign, meaning something is happening. In my case, the nerve regenerated thru the scar tissue and reached the muscle, the muscle just doesn't know what to do. The muscle at this point may be destoyed or "turned to mush", but not giving up hope.

I assume you are wearing an AFO, its a pain, but its worth it. I'm using an Otto Bach, carbon fiber, had it for about year, nice and lightweight.

From what i heard, the tendon transfer procedure is a lengthy rehab, 3weeks in non-weight bearing cast, 3weeks in a weightbearing cast, 2-3 months of physical therapy, you essentially have to retrain a musle that was designed to do something else.

I just need some more claification on the procedure and success rates.
