Hey all. I just wanted to report good news since it is few and far between around here. I can walk right again!!!! No really that is my fantastic news. For the past 6 months I haven't been able to put the heel of my right foot down on the ground without extreme pain. I always refused canes, wheelchairs, and the like but walked with a wicked limp because I refused to put my heel on the ground. I knew the first time out of bed in the hospital I was better. It was an immediate thing, I put my right foot down on the ground and didn't have my entire side buckle from the pain.

I don't know if I'm going to get any better than I am right now. Still reall having post-op pain but I'm certain the surgery helped to some degree. That is all I could ask for.

I just wanted to share some good news with everyone.


  • Lilac, I'm glad to hear that. I remember how wonderful I felt right out of surgery that the tingling was gone in my right arm and that the numbness was gone and I had the strength back in my left arm.

    Those immediate results are always a great relief. Now, you need the rest of you to heal, so take care of yourself and follow doc's orders.

    Great news, good to hear it.
  • that really is good news and i am so happy for you! :D it is good to hear of some good news, it helps lifts my spirits! :D all the best!! Jenny :)
