Hello, I went thru cancer treatment last year. The entire chemo, radiation & feeding tube & port. I'm happy to say that for now my cancer is in remission. However, a side effect of that treatment has left me with foot drop. I had never in my life heard of such a thing. I would like to hear from someone who has any info to share. I have been told that my contractures are severe & permanent. None of my doctors has said that is the cause of my foot drop, but I think the timing of it should be obvious. Peripheral neuropathy nerve damage and just have to accept and live with it. Thanks, Robin
