Footdrop

Hi there everyone. I have just been formally diagnosed with PPMS after 10 years of lets wait and see. Apparently the criteria for diagnosis has changed and I can now be confirmed even though the lumbar was negative.

I had a knee replacement back in December and somehow they fractured my tibia. Due to non weight bearing for 3 months, my weak leg and footdrop is very much weaker. I am now gaining strength but the footdrop is quite bad and I wondered if anyone out there had any suggestions for footwear?

I am lucky enough to have a SAFO and I did try Clarks Wavewalk which are really good but they dont seem to do them anymore. I am going to ask about FES and would appreciate any comments on this.

Thank you

Amy
