    Hello: Thought I would show you a machine I have fallen in love with!

    Seated Eliptical. My gym has two and getting on one is the first thing I do upon arrival. It has helped my legs. (not that I don't still have problems, but any forward improvement ... I'll take)

    I feel this has helped my legs a good deal.

    How is your therapy going? I hope you have seen improvement.

    nah man I well it was pretty stupid... I was jumpin on a trampoline... and was just tryin to jump into a pool... feet 1st... and I guess I just got to close to the springs... and the resistance was to much and it flipped my body and I hit the bottom of the pool with my neck. What happen to you?

    have you had much return in your hands?

    any kind of walker? or did you have one modified?

    One thing I learned, you have to tell them... don't want for them to tell you anything. Take a notebook with you, printed out questions and do not leave unless they answer everything. As nice or good as they may be, they are not the one who needs to get healed, better, and walk..really .. express to them what YOU want. You are the important one. (that is hard for us who have not been selfish people, but this is a good selfishness we much have)
    Did you have any surgery? I was at UCSF then at Cal Pacific Rehab. I was in rehab hospital one full month. My focus after out of hospital was to walk. All the other things could come little by little but I found a therapist who helped me focus on walking. He did good. Had me doing exercises, and walking in front of full wall mirror.

    Hi Goredeisel: I walk without aid. (or as I tell people who can't see me, I don't walk good, I don't walk pretty and I don't walk far .. but I WALK!)
    Seems as if once we get half way good recovery, no one knows what to do. I just recently found a gym where the owner is a Therapist who works with spinal patients at UC Davis. So I joined. I don't do a lot, but I go each day to increase my walking and power in my legs.
    I used a walker for the first 4 months. They wanted me to go to crutches but I was afraid I would be too dependant on them, so I refused. I was 6 months post surgery before I drove my car. And I was scared as all get out the first few times.
    How are you doing? And if you have anything that has helped you with healing, please share. I am still looking and praying for us all to recover.

    Hello, congrats on your ability to walk, its; a great accomplishment. I walk with a cane. Over a 3 year period, I began in a wheel chair, 3-4 months later I was fitted with KAFO's and walked with a walker, after 4 months 1 brace was removed, 6 months later the brace was reduced to a AFO at which time I walked with loft strands. 5 months later I purchased the bioness L-300 to assist with dropped foot at which time the AFO was removed and I began walking with a cane.

    Keep it up, buddy! Cauda Equina here, like I said, but it does not stop me. I bodybuild, powerlift, race my wheelchair and scuba. work a full 40 hour week. Life aint over till you are dead in the ground.

    Keep pushing past what you think you can do from you picture in the walker you look very strong in upper body that will help tremendously. I am almost 3 yrs post with a inc c-4 quad diagnosis and I can walk ind and ride a bike like crazy but I cannot run or do anything quick movement wise. Remember what Lance Armstrong said (Pain is only temporary it may last a week a month or a year, If I quit its forever. So do what you can to get better Be alright with what you have right now and press on. Looks like your a lucky man anyway if Darra is your girl.
    Good Luck, Craig

    Hey there hm...to use them around functionally it took about 2 years I would say...like right now I use them all the time in the house and just leave my wheelchair outside. But if something is still long distance or I know seating won't be there I'll still take my chair. I just think of the chair as a tool not a prision anymore.

    Hello Goredeisel,
    I sent you a friend request to become one of my Care Cure Friends. I read your last post & was happy to hear that you've taken some steps using crutches. Do you wear leg braces also? If you do it's good that you do. I have a friend who is a paraplegic since he was 9yrs old & he has KAFO's that he usually puts on every day to do some walking & stretch out. I have KAFO's myself that I wear & when I do I feel better & have less pain. Keep up the good work. I'm rooting for you.
