... be here in the first place. As for healing in 12 months or so, I have to say that's it's kind of difficult to put a time limit on something like this. This dang peroneal nerve is going to heal at its own pace, and that's just the reality of the situation. ... (8 replies)
... But the worst of it all, is the nerve damage that has occurred. Catastrophic is a good word to use. I have no dorsal movement of my right foot, nor can I push outwards, and parts of the side of my right leg and top of my foot are numb. After the accident, I now suffer from what the thread title says.... ... (83 replies)
... It has been a hard road the entire time, and only now in the past few months have I noticed positive dorsiflexion and movement. This is a condition that can really try even the most patient person, so hang in there. ... (42 replies)

... u'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. I can walk without a brace and drive, but my drop foot is not as strong as my normal foot. ... (42 replies)

... Hi Gmac1975...Although it took I while to isolate where my problem was coming from...the spine, hip, or my case, the problem is at the knee and the peroneal nerve. ... (29 replies)
... one from what I understand. All they're going to do is free the nerve, which the doctor believes became compressed during my fracture surgery. This will give my peroneal nerve and the nerve sheath the opportunity to heal on it's own...may or may not work, and it will be several weeks before I know anything. ... (3 replies)
... Wrist. The surgeon said all of the ortho work on my fractures were healing well. However, it has left me with nerve damage, that includes a "dropped foot" and lack of sensitivity in my lower leg. He sent me to get an EMG performed yesterday also. ... (83 replies)
... now I understand what is actually happening...actually it's a lot like mine, except that I have some slight movement upward and outward. Come to think of it, I can also move my toes up slightly as well. I can walk around without my AFO without really raising my leg very much at all...I just have to be careful. ... (5 replies)
... is where your foot will stay now for good. Also, never, ever, did I believe that any of this was your fault for not doing all the one would ever heal if healing depended on patients doing everything their doctors said they should do...this is really true, and I'm a great example of it... ...

... had surgery to repair a badly broken leg...I'm not a doctor, but the most important thing for you to find out is where your foot drop is coming from...I think it can come from the spine, hip, or knee and there are specific EMG tests, which will exactly pinpoint the location of your problem... ...

... ared at me with their mouths open...I still have dropped foot, of course, but I was walking so much better than before the surgery...for some reason, the trapped nerve causing my foot drop was also stopping my knee from working properly, and this changed immediately after surgery and was noticeable to everyone. ...

... Thanks for the well wishes. After 13 years, 4 weeks has been nothing! That's how long ago I severed my sciatic nerve, falling thru a plate glass door. A nerve graft was only a partial success at the time hence the drop foot, countless AFOs, foot problems, chiropodists etc. ... (29 replies)
... mm stretch and was told the nerve would heal at a rate of approximately 1mm per month, then things may start improving. I try to move my foot and toes, and it feels like things want to go but can't. ... (4 replies)
... Did you ever get a nerve release surgery in the knee? ... (4 replies)
... g. It isn't pain but there is a huge difference in how both legs feel. Also, I now am getting a lot of 'sparking' in my foot. My PT thinks it is possibily the nerve really starting to work and heal itself but it could be simply the residual damage to the nerve and just is what it is. I am just going to have to live with it. ... (83 replies)

... on the wall observing all the new latest and greatest things for drop foot, even if they don't apply in my particular case...also, 5 months of nothing to do but heal broken bones, gave me plenty of time to browse the Internet and preserve my sanity at the same time... ... (29 replies)
... I had surgery 4 days later to reconstruct the ACL and repair the PCL and LCL. The Surgeon also had a look at my nerve during the 4 hour surgery and he said it was beaten up really bad but still intact. He told me it should grow back in time. ... (8 replies)
