This patient is only 3-1/2 weeks from decompression of her common peroneal nerve, superficial peroneal nerve, and proximal tibial nerve and the leg. We realize that this is not very long after surgery, but that is the point. Not only did she have weakness with partial loss of function in the ability raise her foot and her toes, but also she was unable to curl her toes under, and had numbness and tingling to the top and bottom of her foot. Within only 3.5 weeks, she already has improved sensation as well as much better muscle function after the nerves that were decompressed. She reports approximately 99% improvement in her painful symptoms in substantial improvement in sensation and muscle function.
