Hi There JRosa...I've was in your exact situation a year and a half ago, but now I'm walking without a brace---so there is hope for your situation. Like you, my first neurologist just brushed off any more healing, and just wanted to wait and wait it out. As you know, or should know from reading the previous posts, there is a time limit when trying to fix nerve issues. I don't know if your injury can be helped or not, but a real specialist in these matters will be able to let you know where you stand. The best advice I can give you is to get yourself to a large medical facility in New York City, such as Columbia University Medical Center or New York-Presbyterian Hospital---you can look them up on the Internet. Don't stay on the Island for this type of medical care. Neurologists just test, but neurosurgeons DO! Take a cab, hijack a friend, but go to NYC for your care.

As for the shoe and brace issues, they are a real pain. For a while I wore two different shoes---my regular shoe on my normal foot and an elastic shoe by Orthofeet on my drop-foot foot. I was a real sight, but I didn't's late, but post again, and I'll try to answer any questions you may have---take care, Tanya
