Re: Femoral Nerve Damage Following Hip Replacement
I had some nerve damage after ankle surgery. It wasn't that bad, just a numb big toe. 14 months after the surgery, I started to get feeling back, pins and needles. It was kind of painful at first. It's completely normal now, though.
Some people believe that moving, touching and massaging the affected body part helps the nerve recover. It might help, and it can't hurt. You can also explore braces, to make it easier to walk, and electronic muscle stimulation, to prevent muscle atrophy.
