Foot Paralysis
I had surgery to resect a left parasagital meningioma 08-09-07.  The surgery left me with temporary paraylsis on my right side (hip to toe).  All of my motor function has returned except for my right ankle and foot, especially my big toe.
I was in PT for seven months and now am released.  Still, after 13 months, my foot is still only about 75% functional.  Can you give me your best guess why that is?  I occasionally have "shocks" down my leg into the bottom of my foot.  Do you think that the neuropaths are still trying to connect?

Hello CatSi,

The recovery has been pretty fast. Take gabapentin or lyrica to accelerate the process of te neuron recovery. The surgery has been intensive and hance it would take substatial time for it to recover well.

Be patient, the disease process is headed in the right direction. Take care.
