I'm happy to say I'm making progress. I have recovered a minute amount of motor control over my left foot and ankle. Still no sensation other than that peculiar vibration feeling like a constant Richter 2 earthquake under my foot. My neurologist says that's related to phantom limb pain, in that the brain is trying to keep that sector of the brain alive by manufacturing a stimulus.
I am up to 1000 feet on the walker, as well. I did take a fall again last week on the stairs......Sunday, the ramp is going up. Still have and will have a lot of chronic pain, and am on a pain management program since I can't take nonnarcotic pain meds due to the Warfarin. I'm on the Fentanyl patch and hydrocodone orals, probably for the restof my life. Chronic pain will at best stay constant and more likely, increase over time.
