Stigeress, I know that I am new and all, but definitely not new to the enemy that we call Foot Drop! First things first, get an AFO, (ankle-foot orthosis). It will not be very comfortable, but it will fit into your shoe and give you MUCH more stability, (it keeps your foot at a 90 degree ankle so you won't trip over your foot). I understand a bit of what you mean when it comes to your child...I don't have any children now because of that particular reason. I'm terrified of what it would be like to become pregnant with this problem, (and scared that I would trip and fall and lose the child before it is born), or even worse...have the baby and fall while carrying it. Sorry, I got side-tracked! After the AFO, since it has only been 3 months you MUST SEE A NEURO-SURGEON NOW!!! You still have time, and that is so wonderful. Do a lot of research and find a neuro that does nerve grafts or transplants near you, but someone who is very credible that has been doing it a long time. They could possibly fix this for you, but not after 6 months, so time is of the essence! I waited too long, see post below, and now I don't have that option anymore. You may also want to consider physical therapy...I've been at it for about 3 months now. I find it very informative and motivational. I even P.T. at home when I'm not at therapy. Stretching is key as well...Just please PLEASE try to see a neuro-surgeon and get an AFO as soon as humanly possible! Good luck to you and your family and I hope this helped a bit!
