Re: Foot Drop after Peroneal Nerve cut

Hi Berries, did your husband get help with a better brace? How are things going for him now? I see your post was dated last November. I also had the nasty plastic brace for awhile; horrid thing. My nerve was damaged in a hip replacement surgery. Now I wear a Velcro brace around my ankle, it hooks into a strap positioned under my shoe laces. I've had drop foot for five months now without a lot of improvement. Although I must say I'm learning to adapt a bit and can wear sandals at times. Will see surgeon again at end of September, always hoping he can give me better news. Taking 600 mg of Neurontin daily. It helps a great deal with the buzzing, prickling feelings. My biggest fear is the numbness and my balance being thrown off. Major concerns of falling at age 67. I want to go back to being the active person I was...................
