Well, I've been unable to walk since Nov. 2005, when I woke up one morning and couldn't move from the waist down, but I love your thought!!
After three years and a LONG list of doctors, it was determined that I have chronic autoimmune myelitis with polyradiculopathy, but over time, I've worked myself up to being able to use a balance ball. I'm not concerned about losing weight while healing, but I would like to keep from gaining right now. I have a VERY slow digestive tract, and I've had my entire colon removed and have an iliostomy, and despite the fact that I don't really snack, everything I do eat lingers. Hence my concerns...
