Help with drop foot
I have drop foot in my right foot. I had a herniated disc in my L3L4 which the doctors found to be weird because of the L4L5 are the ones that should be pinching the nerve. I developed drop foot a week before my surgery and still have no change 3 weeks later. All I get from the doctors is that it may be days weeks or years before I regain use of my foot. I do get fitted for a AFO later this week.

Hi, sorry I just read your question. I had no pain prior to developing right foot drop. I had emergency surgery which was a laminectomy at L3,4 and 4,5 with decompression, partial diskectomy and removal of bone fragments. That was 18 mos ago and no improvement. I am still told by my team of specialist at the Mayo Clinic there is still hope of nerve recovery but may take up to 3 years. I can't stand the AFO but it sure makes walking easier. I live in Florida so the AFO is hot and frustrating not being able to walk on the beach. But, I know trying to remain optimistic can only help because what is the alternative right.
Do you have pain in your big toe?

I felt like that in the beginning because my big toe would not go smoothly into my shoe. This did improve and I don't notice much anymore. I'm still learning the website too.
