If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Regaining movement once lost

Postby SMKergis » Tue Sep 13, 2011 10:50 am

My father has MS and has for 31 years now. He has been in a wheelchair since I was about 10, 20 years now. He has been able to move his legs at all and until 5 years ago had some very slight movement in his left big toe. Has anyone ever heard of someone regaining movement of legs after 20 years of paralysis without treatment?

Yea, nothing different for him. Just started moving his legs last week. Actually has been bedridden for about 4 months after a surgery. Thanks for your reply.

perhaps his veins had a chance to open up during the 4 weeks of laying down.

I think 7 years......I am not entirely sure. She had true chemo and copaxone but kept progressing then changed her lifestyle.
