Nerve damage?

I had bilateral total hip replacement on March 14. I had a 1-inch dislocation on the left side and 1/2-inch dislocation on the right. In recovery, I couldn't feel my feet. The doctors said it was caused by the nerve being stretched when placing the hips in their proper position. Since then, I've had tingling,numbness, and foot drop in both feet. Nothing seems to help the pain. I was wondering if anyone experienced this and know of any good treatment and longevity of the condition. Please feel free to e-mail me at Thanks!
