Hi everyone. I've been suffering from foot drop or drop foot for about 5-6 weeks. This happened from bending at the knee for a couple hours at a time throughout the day. I was basically sitting on my knees for that period of time. I now have to wear an AFO on my left foot and calf to brace the foot and to keep it from dragging on the floor. The pain hasn't improved very much, neither has the motion of my foot. I still can't lift the front part of my foot up off the ground after all this time of five weeks. I'd like to know from others if it's time to have surgery, or should I wait it out the full three months and see if it goes away by itself.? I'm pretty sure I pinched the peroneal nerve on the top back side of my calf because I also had a huge blister in that exact spot that was full of this liquid jelly type of substance. Has anybody else experienced this? And would a Neurologist be the right doctor to see about this?
