hi, I had polio when I was 4 and had to wear a brace for a few years. When I was 29 I had reconstructive surgery done so when I walked I wouldn’t throw my foot but rather it came straight forward. I ended up looking like I just had a limp and it seemed was always asked “did u hurt yourself?”
about 8 months ago I noticed my leg getting weaker on the left leg, which is a little over 1” shorter. My right side that’s always been stronger developed sciatica and is now weaker also. The last couple weeks I found myself not being able to lift my foot all the way which ends up hitting my toe when the foot comes forward. I realize the the new nerves/muscles that branded off from my paralyzed muscle are wearing out. Is anyone experiencing this? Thanks
