Re: foot drop?

Hi Tony hopefully your drop foot will soon be gone. Mine was caused five months ago from a traction injury during hip replacement. Guess my body was stretched too far, for too long and the Sciatic nerve was injured. Not sure mine will ever be well. Apparently the nerve heals at a rate of one inch a month, from the top down. I do have buzzing, tingling going on in my foot/ankle/outside calf. At times my ankle can feel like concrete, and is always numb. Sounds like your problem is much less severe and should be well soon. kathleen
