Foot drop post knee replacement

I had Bi-lateral knee replacements done Aug. 24th. I awakened to a foot drop of my right foot. It moves down, and sideways but I cannot lift it. It is also the cause of terrible nerve pain and areas of tingling and numbness. Has anyone else experienced this? How did they treat the pain and did it go away. My Dr. Is saying it most likely will in a few months.
