I have axonal damage

July 28, 2006 at 3:19 pm

I had the GBS affect from my knees down and partially in my hands and arms. They told me I had axonal damage. It has been over a year and I have no sensory or motor control to my ankles or to my feet or toes. My physio therapist told me she didn’t think they will ever come back. I plan on proving her wrong. So for now I use AFO’s and am fighting to get mobile and hopefully stay mobile. Even if I don’t get it back once I get walking I can still walk, with the wonderful invention of the AFO’s as they allow me to be able to walk so that I am not stuck in a wheelchair forever. I still need to use a wheelchair but hopefully soon I will be out of it for the most part.
