looking for insight on peroneal nerve damage.
I had a 3 level spinal fusion (L3-S1) 8 1/2 months ago here in NYC. I'm a fit 55 year old guy, climbed a volcano 2 years ago with my son. But post op, my recovery seems to have stalled. I cannot stand on the balls of either legs (unless in the pool) and my left peroneal nerve may be so hampered it won't ever recover. I can lift my foot up but cannot (barely) demonstrate eversion (outward). There was a great deal of stenosis but the surgeon reported that the nerve channels were now clear. Active physical therapy but again, seemed to have maxed out here at the 8-9 month mark. I reviewed some great posts here. Wondering if anyone ever compiled a list of "best of" suggestions. Desperate to find actions to take within the one year of surgery mark. I bought a little nems unit as i heard it can help. My physical therapist spoke to me of a tendon transfer but that sounds awful.
Any innovative, out of the box practices out there producing results? Much thanks!
