      Just got rid of one afo on my right foot dr and physical therapist say I dont need it. Bought a regular size pair of shoes today . boy does it feel weird. I have had my afo on for over two years. Not ready to get rid of the left one yet but soon. Went back to my crutches for a while just until i get used to it. then i will go back to using just my cane. tomorrow i go back to therapy and drive my self there that should be interesting. Anyone else where afos then get rid of them again?

      walked the GBS walk on saturday without my afo. still trying to recover. walked the miracle mile. I was the last to finish but i did it. My hands and feet have gone numb again. Dont know what to think my mom is not concerned but i am. Diagnosed CIDP post gbs. New to this whole CIDP so dont know if i should be worried or if this is to be expected. Posted on the CIDP site as well. Any advice would be great.
