It is now 26 days since I have stopped a mega dose of flagyl. About 10 days after taking the pulse of 12 days I could hardly walk to the kitchen as the spasticity in my right leg was the worst it has ever ever been. This nasty phase of walking lasted about 7 days in all. Now my walking is a bit better and I managed to walk without limping too much about 700 meters yesterday so I feel like I am getting back to where I was before the pulse.
But I'm still surpisingly shaky. This was possibly not a relapse but a phase of all the nasty bacteria doing something nasty once killed off by the pulse, a "pseudo flare". This belief is fortified by the fact that it was only my right leg and left foot burn which worsened this time round whereas when I first started going downhill I was affected in my right leg, my left leg, my bladder, my swallowing, my odd kidney area l'hermitte thingamybob and my right hand. Well, if it was a relapse the areas affected were much fewer. I think/hope that resumption of vitamins and amino acids is helping the recovery. Still I ain't taking the flagyl for another 2 weeks as I'm off to boiling hot Italy and I really daren't risk a sudden worsening of walking in front of the potential in-laws...! It'll be bad enough in the Tuscan heat.
I am also immensely cheered by the discovery of a stem cell company which will inject umbilical cord stem cells into one's spine for about £12,000. Apparently it really helps. I think that even if the antibiotics work I will need a stem cell boost because I have a large lesion in my spinal cord and repairing this area is particulary difficult. I posted details of the company in the stem cell section.
