Recovery takes time

January 12, 2008 at 2:32 pm

Just hang in there, the lower legs and feet are the last to improve. I was in a wheelchair at Christmas 2006 and am now walking again, even without a cane and went to Mexico on holidays for 2 weeks in November. My lower legs were extremely week last spring but daily physio sure paid off. I still need soft anke braces but am practicing walking barefooted more and more. I still have considerable altered feeling in my ankles and feet but this is improving as well. My toe drop is also slowly improving and I can now wiggle my large toe, which I could not 2 months ago. Stay with it and try to stay off the steroids, too many side-effects.
