Hi Peter,
I also fell a number of times due to catching my toe due to foot drop. I started using a cane and picking my feet up fairly high which used a lot of energy. I had a simple over the counter brace I got on Amazon to help on my most involved side but still needed to walk very carefully and thoughtfully. My ankles do feel a bit more “wobbly” just as you describe and if I walk on uneven surfaces I really need to stay focused on my feet. The orthotic brace I got is made by a company called Ottobock and is called “WalkOn flex” model 28U22. It does help with the foot drop quite a bit and walking is less taxing. It doesn’t necessarily give me more ankle support but my ankles actually seem a bit more stable (perhaps a good benefit of having Rituximab treatment?). In any event, I was able to try a few different types at my orthotists clinic and these were the lightest and most comfortable. I hope you could try some different types and find one that works for you.
Take care!
