    Re: Any Info On Drop Foot

    Mike,

    I've had foot drop twice with collapses and fusions. Each time my foot drop improved/or recovered fully in a month or two following the surgery. My last time was with the 10 level fusion just six months ago this week and I've fully recovered from the foot drop.

    If you've had the foot drop since spring of 2004, and your last surgery was this past Feb, you should already have seen significant improvement if you are going to have it. I began PT right early, and imagine you have had some by now. What does the PT say about your foot drop?

    If you are on workman's comp I would guess that you didn't get a spine specialist but either a general ortho or general neuro. Even if out of pocket, I'd be seeing a spine specialist (ortho or neuro who has compeleted a spine fellowship and spends their entire practice on spines alone) to see if I could recover from the drop. I would not be doing so well if I had not been cared for by a spine specialist.
