drop foot following knee replacement surgery

redne posted:
I had KPS surgery 4 weeks ago. Immediately following surgery I was unable to lift my ankle and toes on the surgery leg. I am in therapy three days a week for the knee and we have started electrode stimulations to help the ankle and toes without much change. I am able to hold the ankle for a short time once the therapist puts it in position but absolutely can't lift it on my own. Any ideas?
