My husband's problem appeared in 2002, although looking back I can see there were earlier signs that we almost didn't notice. He should be in a wheelchair now, but doesn't want one, and we can't afford one either.
For 2 months around the time of his 2 procedures, he suffered from a continuous UTI, due to an inability to urinate when taking antibiotics, necessitating a Foley catheter, causing another UTI....endless cycle. He is now self cathing, not on antibiotics and taking supplements to control the bacteria as best he can. The reason I mention these problems, is because they hinder him feeling better. The antibiotic use, and the UTI both cause him to walk badly(well, he does that already, but he can't stand and move at all, when it is very bad). Therefore, it is hard to measure a difference there.
He has not had the warming of his feet, which others describe or the HD television effect either. Again, he has a problem of missing veins in his pelvic area, and this problem has no fix...
Still, he seems less tired and groggy to me...he often stays up later than he used to and he seems very present, less tired looking. He did have successful unblocking of what was basically a shut down left jugular. He was ballooned in 3 separate locations there, and checking this 2 months after being done, it has been found to be still unblocked. Yay.
