Recovery can take three years or more and slows down with time. Recovery may never be 100%. I am six years out of hospital and still have strength and balance deficiencies from the knees down. I consider it permanent.
After the walker did you start using a cane? I used a cane for about a year and a half before I gave it up. If you can walk, you should be able to stand with a cane by leaning against it.
