I really am beginning to understand the ups and downs of this recovery! It really is a roller coaster ride!
I woke up this morning feeling so good! I had slept through the night for the 2nd night in a row (with the use of benedryl)!
During physical therapy we (PT and I) realized the weakness and significant tremor that I have in my left leg. The scariest part is that once the tremor gets started, it's hard to stop. Typically, when an extermity is weak, it may shake while you are trying to use it, but once you stop, the tremor stops as the muscles aren't being asked to cont to work.
I have my surgeon's voice in the back of my head that I could have MS or some other neurological issue. It's so hard to look at my leg, will it to work in my mind and then watch it do nothing but shake. There is such a huge difference in strength in my 2 legs! I cried, my PT cried! She did say that nerves that have been compressed, can, and do, get better. Please pray that this is only due to nerve compression and nothing more!!
Honestly seeing the signif. difference in leg strengths, I'm amazed, I haven't fallen! I need to be so very careful!
