It is important to know the extent of axonal damage. Demyelination heals relatively quickly and completely. Axonal damage takes much longer to heal, and may not recover 100%. Not that you can do anything about it, but I think it is helpful to understand what has happened and what to expect. I have axonal damage in my legs, and my foot drop has been very slow to correct, but it is pretty good now. There is a good chance your foot drop will correct, but understand that it may take awhile.
