Hello. I m 31 yr old 53kg thin woman who was diagnosed with spinal tuberculosis at L1 vertebrae in september 2017. I was advised bed rest and meds had started. I was getting up to use the washroom and had a TSLO brace in 10 days of the diagnosis.
In mid october I had a lot of tingling numbness for which I went to ER where they did a few MRIs. And a follow up contrast MRI showed a wedge fracture at L1.
So from then. Till present time. I had been on complete bed rest. On my last appointment the doctor suggested to start walking till the bathroom. Been 3 days... I can sit for 10 min with TSLO and someone supporting my back. And today I stood up with support from my mother and I felt my legs will give away
The next attempt I had my mum n brother supporting my weight. I think I stood for hardly 1 minute and I was sweating so....
This is hard.
Does anyone has tips.
I hv been on bed rest for 7 weeks or so
