    C-5, 6 SCI. Took about 6 months to walk. Walking full time. Without any assistance since Nov. 2003 and will make a full recovery

    Hi
    I had spinal stroke the week of sept 5th. also laminectomy on the 6th. before the surgery I could feel but not move my legs. after the surgery... I have no feeling below my waist. I do have a lot of tingling and recently tightness (like I'm wearing tight stockings).

    Any rehab I have had has been small... such as working on balance and dressing, etc. part of the problem is insurance and for awhile I was so swollen I couldn't sit up.
    Anyways, I know I'm almost 5mos out and I know I need to get aggressive rehab and soon if i'm going to walk again.

    what exactly did you do to walk so soon? where did you start?

    I do have an appointment with Physical Medicine and Rehab on feb 2nd.

    I've just been very overwhelmed with it all. (in addition - my mom died a day after my surgery)

    thanks

      I was just lucky. Remember everyone's different. Do your therapy and fellow what they tell you. Workout at home as well. Try to find a lokomat in your area for walking. And try to keep a positive attitude.

      Good luck

        Bookmarked! This is an excellent resource -- thanks so much. It will definitely put more structure around the PT regimen.
