drop foot due to nerve damage
I am 36 years old and underwent a major hip surgery on Dec. 2, 2012.
I suffered nerve damage from the surgery and have had severe foot drop since then.
I have been going for physical therapy since Feb. 2013.
It has been over eight months since my surgery and have regained very little movement of my right foot.
I can push my foot down and out to the right, however, I can move my toes and foot upward and inward very little.
I am still having severe pain in my foot and toes.
My physical therapist says that the nerve regenerates very slowly at only 1 mm per month.
Is this true? Any other information on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much!
