Doctor ,when I was 5 years old I had an operation in which my sciatic nerve or peroneal nerve was pressed. Soon I lost muscle in my right leg. The leg wasn't growing and even caused foot drop. The doctor suggested me to do exercise n physiotherapy .I did it for few months and there was improvement but couldn't continue it due to my families financial problems. Now I'm 18 I can move my fingers expect the toe. And can lift my foot a bit. But my leg is still thin. Will I recover from this? Please help .and can I use a fes footdrop system?
