Thanks, Bob. When people ask me how I am, I have to say that I am stable. I do have to add, that when people see me for the first time since the treatment, they say that I look like a different person. I did gain a lot over the first 3 months. I couldn't even stand with my cane for more than a minute or 2 before HiCy, and as I have said, I believe I was 6 months away from a nursing home- I have absolutely no regrets about having had it.
But, as far as going for even a short walk with my cane or having anywhere near normal balance, or endurance with my arms and legs, it could be alot better. That's not the fault of HiCy, just the need for treatment for SPMS, and permanent damage from demylination. It seems to have taken research a long time to come along and even begin to address anything other than inflammation and active lesions.
