Re: Foot Drop?

Hi, I have drop foot after my hip surgery 2 yrs ago. When did you notice your foot drop? It may come back on it's own (6-12 mos). What you may want to do in the meantime is get an AFO (ankle foot orthotic) and you'll need new shoes that are 1-2 sizes larger to accommadate the AFO. Do the exercises that your PT gives you - these will help keep the muscles working...Another thing, when the weather turns colder, please, do not wear slippers! There will be times when you don't concentrate on walking and wearing slippers may cause you to catch your toes and thump - you have rolled your ankle and hurt your foot!! Please be careful when you walk - try not to let your mind waiver.

Do you have nerve pain too?
