Recovery time varies

May 28, 2006 at 9:11 am

Hi Wallace-this is a revamped forum and I’m not sure if many of the ‘old’ members know that its been fixed up and working again so you may not get many replies really soon. Recalling the old forum, there were many variations of the recovery completeness as well as the rate. I’ve been told that we never get to 100% but in many cases we get so close to it that you can’t tell the difference. Personally, I notice no difference now except my balance isn’t always great especially when fatigued. Also you might get transient tingles and pain. The knees were especially weak (wanted to just fold) and I recall the ‘lazy’ feeling in them but that all passed. It is very scary and stressful as you wonder if you will ever be the same again, but it sounds like you are on your way. If you are standing now, then control of your feet and toes musn’t be too far behind. I would rate my recovery as quite a bit faster, but paralleling yours in terms of what seems to be going on with you.You’ll get there.

good luck……Ray
