Saturday I saw my street replaced by a Deliverance type raging river and my backyard transformed into Niagara Falls. I had to siphon away water 3 bricks high sitting against the house. Ceiling light transformers gone from water damage, telephone out of service. Yesterday helped in cleaning up inside and out and then I attended a family function. Still more cleaning up today. Thus I've had a Long Weekend full of opportunities to push myself and find my limitations.
Improvements Post Op + 4 days
1. A more relaxed throat and my voice appears stronger.
2. I can empty the bladder more completely & less frequently.
3. Pronounced reduction in fatigue.
4. Less tremor in arms/hands (can hold a full cup of coffee or drink without spill).
5. Less right leg spasm at night.
6. Waking up refreshed rather than tired.
7. Clearer & quicker thinking.
Folks, I've had MS for many years now and consequently neurological damage has accumulated as well as losses in muscle conditioning & fitness, and this being reflected in reduced physical activities.
Realistically functional losses relating to balance, motor skills and muscle coordination cannot be regained quickly and will need rehabilitation such as appropriate and sustained exercise over time. I intend to stay on Tysabri for the time being in order to control any ongoing inflammation processes.
I'm hoping Prof Thomson will find a solution for the network of collaterals high in the Right IJV. If not I may be stuck with this primary vein abnormality. We'll see in a month's time at my next appointment. I will try to post venogram images tonight for illustration pre and post procedure.
Wishing you all the best tomorrow Daniel!!
Hahahah. Fortunately my area didn't get flooded Adolfo, how were those massive hail balls though? I am very happy for you, and I hope you see more improvements by the day.
