That's exactly my what I was thinking about. To rehabilitate or not to rehabilitate? That is the question!

I would think rehab would be helpful & would also provide a charted record of improvements...but wouldn't it depend on where you're starting from and how much recovery is possible?

Just seems there are a lot of unknowns with this particular point. If you had the procedure, I guess you could see a physio but what would be there response to post-liberation treatment, "forget it, you've been disabled for a number of years!?" It's just whom do u turn to, what do you do ppost-liberation? There don't seem to be any answers...or examples. AI'm sorry but less brain fog doesn't really say much or does it? :cry:

No, that makes perfect sense. If you're in a situation where rehab has not been a possibility but then, after the operation, want to see if it is...I suppose you'd have to convince your regular doctor and get a referral to rehab.

Hi there
I go to a community pool rehabilitation programme even though IM in a wheelchair. Keeps me active and more limber I am getting liberated in Poland in June and when I return I am planning to resume my program. I'm hoping to see the fabulous results. Can you possibly do this now? Then you're ready after. this is through a doctor referral. maybe there's one in your town! I like it because it's in a group setting not just me and a physio.

Physio will continue

I see physiotherapists on a regular basis. I've been exercising (with the regime changing as I deteriorated) on average about 5 times a week for the last 5 years. I was recently referred to a rehab physiotherapist who is currently doing a bunch of benchmarking tests on me. She is very interested in my impending (hopefully) liberation treatment and wants to see how I do against those benchmarks when I come back from being treated.

I can't imagine that any decent physiotherapist would try to dissuade you from starting a rehab program appropriate for your capabilities.

For myself, if I can get the liberation procedure, I am planning on using my exercise cycle at first to re-gain muscle strength. If my balance returns, I would then try to resume practicing tai chi.

good point, small steps at first, then perhaps if u feel better, stronger then perhaps go one step further and try something more difficult. There are so many unknowns these days.....
