Fingers Are Difficult To Move After Surgery For CTEV Abnormalities?
I want to ask, 1 year ago I had foot surgery (formerly CTEV) after the operation I was told to wear special shoes (AFO shoes) for almost a year I wore AFO shoes and in the last 4 months I no longer wear these shoes, why did Yiba suddenly come 4 months apart I can’t move my toes (total weakness)rnHow do I fix it?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. CTEV or congenital talipes equinovarus is a congenital disorder in which one or both legs bend or fold inwards. The cause of this condition is still unknown, but several theories have stated that this can occur due to genetic disorders, neurological disorders, growth failure in fetal conditions, and so on. There are several ways of handling it, and one of them is through surgery.
In your case, weakness in the toes or in other parts of the body can occur for various reasons, but often involves the nerves because the nerves are the ones that carry information from the brain to the muscles to move. Among them:
Immune system disorder in which the immune system attacks the body's nerves and causes damage that interferes with nerve communication. Inflammation of the spinal cord, such as in transverse myelitis, which is characterized by a strange feeling or discomfort in the toes and feet, weakness, and even paralysis. Bacterial infection spread by tick bites (Lyme disease). This condition is characterized by weakness, loss of energy, muscle and joint pain.
In your case, the condition could be one of the above possibilities, or none at all. Because to be able to determine the right diagnosis, a more complete history is needed as well as a direct physical examination, as well as possible supporting examinations. So you should check your condition to a neurologist for further examination. It's also a good idea to share a year's history of wearing special shoes before you finally experience these symptoms to get your doctor to consider nerve compression.
In addition to that at home, you should not take any medicine or apply anything on your feet. Notice again whether the immobility is followed by loss of touch sensation when the foot is touched or not. Do not stand or walk too much, you can massage yourself lightly and as soon as possible take him to a neurologist for further examination. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
