I have problems too

July 7, 2006 at 4:05 pm

I have to wear AFO’s and they also want me wearing medical socks. This is a pain in the butt, without them my legs swell up and I can’t walk without the AFO’s and the only shoes that I can use are running shoes and I had to wear mens running shoes and that was hard enough to find as womens din’t fit and mens shoes didn’t all fit either. I tried getting ones that would breath good and be cool but no luck. I don’t really notice except that they smell. I still have no motor or sensory to my feet or ankles so in that way I am lucky though I still get the odd feeling like a lightning bolt just went through them. But that is rare.

Hope there is a solution for everybody.
