Nerve damage in left leg, help!

I have had nerve damage for over 10 years; all methods I have tried, including chiropractic, acupuncture, electrical therapy, and working with trainers and therapists for the entire duration of this illness has only resulted in the worsening of my situation. The nerve damage is in my left leg, starting at the toes. It is the result of spinal stenosis, for which I had surgery for, twice; the surgery did not alleviate the progressive weakening of my left leg. I have come to the conclusion that the only thing that might help me is a leg brace, as the entire leg collapses if I try to walk for several minutes with a walker. Would anyone know of a brace that may prevent my leg from collapsing? Thank you so much for your responses, and I would be happy to provide more information about my condition.

I do not know if a brace would work if your entire leg collapses but I wear AFO's for foot drop and to prevent me from re-injuring my legs. It goes under the foot and then up to the calf and attaches on the calf. Shoes keep the rest of the AFO on the foot.
