... Oh, my goodness, you poor dear. I can tell you a little bit about what I know as a nurse with what we call "foot drop". That is what I think you are describing. I have never seen this in people that can walk, only in people who are quadrapelegic or parapalegic. They get it because they can't move and they then become contracted, permanent positioning of an extremity. My... (3 replies)

The "new" therapist wanted to loosen some very tight muscles behind my right knee, and after pressing something quite hard back there, the nerve pain has acted up again...I'm really annoyed about about this, but I can understand how this happened as the muscles and nerves all run together back there ... ...

... which I took for a couple of months. Really this med didn't help at all and I slowly weaned myself off of it.

... Hi Tanya, Well, not long back from the hospital. It was quite weird, my head is still spinning actually. Saw 2 nurses who, eventually, got my cast off. The consultant wasnt around so I just sat and stared at my foot for 10 mins wondering if it had worked or not. Then the consultant came in, had a quick look at it, got me to hobble around a bit then told me just to go home... (29 replies)

... Lynn Thank you for sharing so much information about the tendon transfer, the AFO and the insurance, and everything else. This is such a peculiar condition that people who haven’t experienced it don’t even know what I’m talking about.

... Lynn, thanks for the information about HHS...this is definitely where I will go if I am a candidate for tendon transfer surgery. Also, thanks for the realistic description of what is involved in this kind of surgery as well. It sure doesn't sound like you walk in, get it fixed, and then walk out again. If it works, then all of it is worth it in the end. You're now 14... (83 replies)
... I agree, unless someone has had drop foot, they really can't quite imagine what it's like. There are things out there to help it, like an AFO.
