I agree with Gici, that is perfectly framed.
But I will talk about my experience, I am about a 6+ (cane all the time rollator sometimes) and have no big improvements to point to . If I could go back in time and talk to myself this is what I would say knowing how it came out ; DO NOT EXPECT ANYTHING DRAMATIC, it won't happen.
I spent the first few weeks looking to suddenly walk like a normal person even though I knew it was unlikely based on physiology, that didn't stop my heart from hoping MAYBE that would happen.
That having been said I do have improvements. See my entry in the tracking project sticky or my regimens thread.
It appears that with a functional electircal stimulator (Walkaid or bioness) I will be able to walk PERHAPS without a cane in some time--before the surgery the Walk aide didn't work that well for me because of spasms. FOR ME, as different from some progressed others, for some reason spasms are the most impacted so suddenly the bioness I tried last week worked perfectly.
But in general, I still feel very MS-y and disabled.
I dread people going into this with rose colored glasses on about results. Those of us who have had MS for a long time have a lot of iron in our brains and there has been a lot of damage that is not going away even if this is the cause of MS.
Looking at it as "I will try this with the hope that I can improve my circulation and give my brain a better chance at healing" is the best way to look at it.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
