I had a right THR on Jan. 29th. Since the surgery, my right foot has been totally numb since then. I can barely move my toes down. I can't move my toes up at all! The doctor says he doesn't know what has caused this exactly. Perhap the nerves were damaged during the surgery, he says, but it should resolve itself within a couple of weeks. Somehow, I have my doubts. I has made recovery slow. I have to wear a brace to keep it from dragging on the floor. Anyone with any answers?
