hi everyone, I'm new to the board and maybe one of you can help me. 4 weeks ago, I suffered a gunshot wound to the back, the bullet is lodge between my L5/S1 nerves and has cause my left foot to drop, be numb, painful, and constantly cramping, my ankle and sole are hard and heavy. I am in constant pain and because I'm 3 months pregnant, I cannot take anything stronger than tylenol. I got conflicting prognosis: my neurosurgeon told me that I will never walk straight ( without a cane or walker), while my rehab MD told that in 6 months to a year, I should start feeling OK. I don't know who to beleive and I am extremely frustrated, not being able to sleep with the pain. Has anybody had any experience with that kind of condition?
Any suggestion ???
