Sue, thank you for your encouraging words. i just had my six month date with TM. I'm encouraged you were walking by then. i just have movement in left leg while lying on right side. I am encouraged with even this. Did you get your walking back all at once or slowly? I know i lost it over six hours beginning with the horrible pain.

thank you for responding! When you say you got your walking back all at once i have so many questions.
1. how long were you without walking?
2. are you saying the same way you lost your walking the feeling and ability to walk or at least stand came back?
I am so so happy for you and I never give up hope!!!! I go to therapy twice a week and they put me in leg braces and have me stant between parallel bars and move my hips forward to walk. Secondly, my Vit D is very low and they have started my on Vit D 125mg twice per month. This is all Positive, I am so excited. I have always imagined my ability to stand would all come back at once. crossing my fingers. thank you!
