I wake up with thoughts about the process of how I got to this place and know it’s not resting with me. Not only was my ‘foot drop’ not referred to in any of my medical notes, but I have now learned that I have it because of a difference in leg length and a paralysis.
I have always known about the leg length difference, but the paralysis I didn’t know about, but it does tie in with me having little muscle mass or working muscle, on my affected side. I can’t point my toes on my cerebral palsy side, but never equated it to the fact that I am paralysed on that side. That would explain why I dragged my leg, and why I couldn’t pick my foot up.
I also didn’t know until fairly recently when I discovered further correspondence, that the specialist I was under took advice from another specialist because he had concerns I was being overlooked, and he was concerned.
The response he got was if the parents weren’t interested, there was nothing he could do to intervene. My parents weren’t interested, ties in with what I was told just before my father passed.
