Sorry to jump in at the end of a long post ... I'm new to the board and just wanted to say "hang in there" ... I had nerve damage following a Post-op femoral nerve block (TTT surgery in 95) and I know exactly what you mean by your legs "not cooperating!" ... it basically took me two years to recovery from a surgery that was supposed to take, I can't quite remember the estimate now, 6 weeks or something ... it just takes time to heal ... just keep asking those nerves to fire, so they'll know they're still needed! :-) My original OS kept telling me that he had no idea what was wrong, I must not want to get better ... took quite a while, and visits to other doctors before I got a diagnosis and could put to rest any little nagging thoughts of "maybe my OS is right - do I *really* not want to walk?!?" It's quite strange when body parts don't really hurt but just don't work and you used to be able to make them work without any thought at all ... anyway, again - hang in there and keep at it - the baby steps (maybe, quite literally, baby steps - was for me!) will add up over time and down the road, you'll be able to look back at how far you've come!
