... Hi Came out of my pot/cast last week which was 12 weeks post op. The op seem to go well but not exactly has hoped. The tendon transfer has got my foot almost at 90degrees but still drops a little. I am using my afo to walk around, walking around bare foot is much better tho as i do not lift my knee and or hip nearly as much. so not perfect results for me but much... (3 replies)

... Hi Tanya Well, it's been a strange few days. After my last message the consultant amazingly did phone back although he wasnt exactly full of information. Asked him about movement in my foot/ankle and he said it might come with time, might not. Would know better in a few weeks, he said. He also changed his mind on me not wearing the AFO during the day, said I should wear it... (29 replies)

... Hi Graeme, It's sounds as if you've had a rather odd experience with your visit to the hospital...I don't know if there are two or more separate surgeries with tendon transfers or not...one an internal AFO, and another which restores additional function? Do you have any pain or discomfort when you try to walk...it sounds like you're doing OK, but the lack of contact with... (29 replies)

... Hey Tanya How you keeping? Your new brace sounds good, I will check out that firm if my leg doesnt heal. So... a week today is D-day when I go back to the hospital to get the cast off. I guess there will be probably be one of 3 possible outcomes: 1, the foot is miraculously all healed and the foot drop is gone (hmmm.. unlikely :D), 2, they say there is improvement but i...

... Hi Graeme... You're very welcome...I'm so happy that I could provide you with some useful information :D. The funny thing is that this company is located in England and Americans have to jump through hoops in order to get such a prosthetic...some more news on the brace front for you...I just got a new carbon brace from the Otto Bock Company. It's very light and comfortable,... (29 replies)

... Hi Tanya I didnt know whether to laugh or cry when I read about the SAFOs! I have been seeing the same orthotists for 13 years now and not once have they mentioned that these alternatives to AFOs existed. I remember a few years ago when I was so fed up with my splint and the problems they were causing me I asked my orthotist if there was ANYTHING at all I could do like have... (29 replies)

... Hi Graeme... Thanks for all the information about driving with the left foot. I also have an automatic car, but it has a big old console in the middle, and I'm not sure how I could handle this...also, I am such an intense right-handed, right-sided person that right now I just cannot imagine how I will maneuver myself into driving with my left foot :dizzy:...thanks for the...

... Hi Tanya, Regarding driving, I've been driving an automatic car with my left foot for about 5 years now and it works fine. It feels a bit weird at first and you have to shuffle over in the seat a bit to get your right foot out of the way but after a while it's just like normal. Plus, if you're not happy with that there is this device you can get that fits over the... (29 replies)
... Hi Gmac just re-read my previous email and it seems I have re-named you Gary! Sorry Graeme! Shy - I was also re-reading the rest of the thread and came across your kind words, Thankyou. (83 replies)
... Hi Kippa and everyone else. I am now 1 year and about 4 months post posterior tibial tendon transfer after having a complete left foot drop. I am still in the AFO. However many of my surgeons patients (if not all) are out of the brace and walking well. I also cannot move my big toe but my others move somewhat. I had a complete and I mean 100% total foot drop so I... (83 replies)
... Hi Clshfan...I hope you are doing well and gaining function with every passing day. As I mentioned before, I have noticed some improvement, but now seem to be stuck at this level...I can move my foot up a about an inch and some to the side, but that's it. I hope I make a further recovery, but only time will tell. In the meantime I've been using a horrid plastic AFO, which was... (83 replies)
... Hi all Just home from the hospital. Went in yesterday morning, procedure took around 3 hours. As well as transferring the tendon they extended the achilles. In a cast up to my knee and need crutches to get around. The pain comes and goes, more discomfort than anything. Going back next week to get the cast redone and the stitches out then see the consultant again the... (83 replies)
... Best wishes on your surgery and a speedy and full recovery. I really hope this brings you complete as possible full health as well as relief and greater mobility. (83 replies)
... hey all was wondering why this thread had gone all quiet then just found out they had stopped notifying me by email for whatever reason.... :confused: Anyway, good to hear all your updates. Going in for surgery on Monday. Dont have a lot of information, dont even know how long it takes! But will update here as soon as I can. G (83 replies)

... Tanya: I do buy 2 different pairs of shoes still. I hate that. I also am glad to hear that it exhausts someone else to lug around a foot. I feel it exhausting to walk without my brace and now don't do it much. I know the point of the surgery was to get out of the brace but the exhausttion I feel after walking and not having the brace on is not worth it to me. (83 replies)
... Sorry I cannot write a longer response right now but I had my surgery initially in January 2007 and had a revision in November 2007. For the first surgery, the more serious one, I was out of commission about 2-3 months either with a cast, fiber glass cast, walking boot and/ or crutches. I started PT some time in April and have been there since. My November surgery required... (83 replies)
... Thanks for all the info, once again…I really had no idea that I would have to wear a brace at night after the tendon transfer surgery. No one has mentioned this little fact yet, but it makes perfect sense as you describe it. What I don’t know yet would fill volumes. The reason that I’ve been told to wear a brace at night is to keep the Achilles tendon in the back of my... (83 replies)
... I know the burning I had right after I herniated my back (that caused the foot drop) went away in about 10 days. I never had to really worry about acute pain after that. I just had numbness, tingling and that 'not right'/ 'akward' feeling that is so hard to describe in my leg since. That has not gotten any better. I have numbness and tingling constantly. People don't get... (83 replies)
... Some days I think I do notice a huge improvement and days like today where I had a job interview in the morning and walked without my brace, I don't think there is much. I walked 4 blocks to the train, was on a train sitting for 45 min and then walked 3 very long blocks after getting off the train without my AFO. After about an hour at the interview, I then walked back... (83 replies)
