I was hoping you would see my post. So glad to hear about your recovery progress. It is encouraging
it happens very slowly so try to stay positive. I was also told many things. Ive discovered really only time will tell. And lots of hard work! But i dont need to tell you that.
I woke up completely numb from my knee down. Could not even wiggle my toes. For months just making my toes work was hard. I seemed stuck for quite awhile and that was so hard.
Its been six months now and am noticing changes. In the last couple weeks i can with my heel on the floor pick my foot up almost even with the uninjured one. Albiet more crooked
The outside of my foot and ankle wont work right yet. Still very weak. But my pt says its great and the dorsi is really getting strong. Almost back to normal! Ive been going ever since a couple weeks after surgery. I still go once or twice a week for the estem treatment. She is really great and has been very encouraging when i get down.
I would love to know what your using for ankle and lower leg strengthening!
Good luck and stay positve!
