I damaged my peroneal nerve during the accident and as a result i couldn’t feel very well the area below my knee and could not move my big toe at all.Also my ankle tended to “stretch” and face the ground.
Today,a year after,i can feel below my knee-not exactly as “normal”.Electric waveforms PT used helped a lot,i could see my improvement from the wattage he used.
I can move my toe-it hasn’t got the same strength as before but i believe it will achieve it in the future.PT also helped a lot.
For my ankle,it was manipulated along with my knee under anesthesia and it was put into a cast for 20 days in order to get to approximately 90 degrees.In my signature is the timeline.
My dr had said right after surgery that nerve damage takes a lot of time to heal(i think 1mm a week)and left me the time to see if there was any improvement.For example,it took months to see my big toe moving just a tiny bit.
Try being positive,take your time and everything is going to be better.
Wish you good luck for tomorrow.
