No change since last week
No real change. Another physio session, including walking between the parallel bars.
I can manage 5-6 yards without holding on, but over 20 yards I start to need some support from the bars. Without the FES, I can hardly move at all. Apart from the morale boost, the best bit is that this is giving the physio a chance to observe my gait in some detail.
At an annual FES clinic, my performance on the Timed 25ft Walk, was the same as it was one year ago. How much is down to Biotin I do not know, but I figure it is not doing me any harm.
No real change in the mobility. Fingernails are growing visibly faster.
No big changes. With no weight at all on left leg, there is a clear (but tiny) improvement in voluntary flexion in left ankle. Some leg movements have not improved. And, a couple of minor changes in condition (non-MS related) may be masking any real improvements.
