      Hi everyone!
      I just wanted to update ya’ll real quick as to how I am doing. I saw my Neurologist in March and found out that I don’t have any nerve conduction from my knee down to my foot in the left leg and I still cannot feel my feet, will these ever come back? For right now, I am using a cane to get around everywhere. Just feel like I have the strength to go without it, even though I have tried it and wound up being exhausted in a couple of hours. The doctor told me that by Christmas of this year, whatever I have is ALL that I will have. He can’t tell me for sure if I will have feeling back in my feet or if I will get more use of my left leg. I have just enough nerve conduction in that leg to walk, but, BOY howdy watch out when I get tired, my left foot DRAGS!! I know it has been awhile since I have been on, but how is everyone else doing? Are you ready for spring yet? Talk to you all later.
      Bye for now,
      Teresa Rose

      Hey there! NO ONE, not even a doctor can tell you what your healing will be or in what time frame!! Don’t buy into those theories as you can become discouraged and then not progress. I am 12 yrs. post GBS and I still see improvements each year. Hey, they may be small but what does that matter as long as it’s on the plus side?!

      Glad to see you back “on site” 🙂

      Good morning.
      I agree no Dr can say if you will have feeling back in your legs. GBS attacked my feet and my right foot was totally numb. I could only use a walker. One monday when I woke up I knew something was different. I tried to walk and could. By Wed over 70 % of the numbness left and it still is.
      I had a great therpist than make me work hard at therpy. Also I turned myself over to God and have let him do the healing.
      Every morning when I wake up I look for a change and usually find one. It will come just have patience and remember you and I are blessed as we can walk. May blessings and healing powers be with you. Lakoda (Steve)
