I HAD SURGERY DEC. 9-09. I HAD A SMASHED SPINAL CORD & THEY FUSED 4 OR 5 OF MY VERTEBRA. I'M RIGHT HANDED. BEFORE SURGERY I HAD FULL USE OF MY RIGHT ARM & WHEN I WOKE UP I HAD LOSE USE OF IT. I STILL HAVE USE OF MY RIGHT HAND. A THERAPIST COMES INTO MY HOME 3 TIMES A WEEK. I'VE MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS IN 4 MONTHS. SHE THINKS I HAVE GOTTEN MY TRICEPS & PARTIALLY MY BICEPS BACK. I'M NOT REALLY GETTING MY DELTOIDS. HER BOSS HAS OKED FOR OSF CHARITY TO PAY FOR ME TO GET A NERVE CONDUCTION TEST & THEN A SECOND ONION FROM ANOTHER NEUROLOGIST. THE TEST WILL EVALUATE WHAT OF MY THREE MUSCLES ARE WORKING & WHAT PERCENTAGE. I MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO RAISE & BEND MY ARM. ANY COMMENTS ABOUT THE TEST WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I AM VERY LOVED & BLESSED! GOD BLESS ALL &
Thank you so much for sharing and I believe in being positive also. You are doing a great job and looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty. Wish you the best and pray you will always feel the presence of the Lord. 2646 days ago
