I thought it was a pinched nerve was told I would need surgerey. So I went to a surgeon and he told me it was from my diabetes . So what do I do to get the use of my foot back ? They put it in a half cast to keep me from falling . Is there anything I can do ?
If it is nerve damage from diabetes then no, there is nothing that can be done other than wearing a brace so you have support and can walk without falling. Physical therapy can help you learn to manage but it wont "cure" anything.
