News wasnt as good as I had been hoping and he thinks there might be no value in doing a tendon transfer as he's not convinced it will work. :( He is talking about ankle fusion as a possible alternative but I really dont like the sound of that. Does anyone on here know any more about the procedure and/or after-effects?? ... (83 replies)

... Hi Brent, I'm real sorry to hear how bad things are going for you, hopefully they have improved from your last posting in 2005. I really hope you got to go to Disneyland and have full mobility and do everything you wanted to do.

Its possible I'll be needing a new one before the old one is a year old. It's very similar to the "toe off brace" except it's L shaped and goes straight down the back of my calf and under the heel. It took... (6 replies)
... What's a MOFO? I wear a custom hinged foot drop brace during the day. Just recently got a "Toe On" brace but I can't seem to get used to it. For the night I have a "A Force Dorsal" brace.
