Hi has anyone had foot drop/nerve damage after an induced coma? I was placed in a coma for 10 days due to pneumonia & respiratory failure. I suffered really bad hallucinations that required antipsychotics to help get me back to reality- another story! However I couldn’t move nor feel my left foot, nerve conduction test showed significant sciatic nerve injury/lesion proximal to the fibres subserving semimembranous muscle and likely to be at the pelvis. MRI clear apart from a cyst but that’s something else. I’m at a a loss. It’s been 3 months now and i am in the dark still very confused. Can anyone shed any light or have you been through a similar nerve problem after a coma?
Thank you xx
