Learning to walk again after decompression surgery

lynseym Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi ive got cervical stenosis with severe myelopathy which basically means my spinal cord was 90% trapped causing major mobility problems and I was in a wheelchair for about 2 years , I had decompression surgery and I'm now learning to walk again as the damage is so bad, it's quite rare at my age (52) I will always have mobility issues and chronic pain, I would be interested to hear from anyone else experiencing this problem tia

    Hi @lynseym welcome to the communityI!

    Sorry to hear what has happened, sounds awful! I have been recovering from Transverse Myelitis which means my spinal cord became inflamed, I've had to learn to sit up, stand up and walk again. It's been incredibly hard to say the least! How are you getting on with physiotherapy? :)
