    Wow! Beautiful pictures, Ed. I have a friend who lives in Venezuela. She hates it there to put it mildly. I said, "But it's so beautiful and colorful and you have the ocean nearby!" She hates the...

    I'm back and you guys are going to make me cry! It's so nice to have a community of strangers that are friends and care about what I'm going through.

    Wow, Melissa!

    It's been a long time since I've been on the board. I didn't know you had broken rod surgery. Isn't that almost like having surgery for the first time? Ouch! You are still healing...

    Ed,
    I'm not a horsman, either. But I agree with Sharon about your leg position. Perhaps the stirrup strap is too short? It looks like it would give you less control of the horse. I'm not fused but...

    My original doctors predicted when I was 16 years old that I would "need" surgery in my early to mid 40's for a curve >40o.
    Although, it is official that I did reach over 40o and I was in my early...

    Bold mine.
    Susan, I am a religious person, too. I can send you a PM if you want. But I 100% do NOT believed we are "picked" to have bad things happen to us. There are too many crooked, mean, and...

    Just in case my joke was vague. I was accusing you of having a screw loose!

    I am so elated to hear that you are recovering. Boy oh boy when I couldn't pee, I would have been overjoyed to sit in my...

    Thank you...all of you, REALLY!
    I was having a moment of self pity, but still feeling the sting.
    I told someone that I got my own in-home gym and got the snarky remark, "Well, are you using it?" I...

    Grrrr....

    My family wants me to call them EVERY time I have a doctor's appointment related to my neuromuscular degenerative disease. So the last time I called my mom I told her exactly what the...

    Jess,
    Just a guess, but since the thoracic vertebrae are less flexible, maybe the flexibility of the lumbar keeps it straighter. It's able to move around, whereas the thoracic has no means of...

    Susie Bee,
    I found out some information about the recessive CMT. You CAN have a mild form of the disease with only ONE allele IF you have an abnormal EMG. So if you are having symptoms, you would...

    Susan,
    There is NOTHING funny about a SCI. But I do find "some" humor in the fact that at least you have a reason for your walking troubles. I've been accused of having a screw loose, but I'm just...

    Susan, if it makes you feel any better, I look like Frankenstein when I walk, too. People stare... I'm not used to it and am embarrassed to go in public. Some people just smile a pitiful smile. I've...

    Susan,
    I'm glad that they caught the pulmonary emboli as quickly as they did.
    You are in intensive PT/OT because they are trying to make sure you CAN walk before you go home.
    They won't send you...

    Makes me wonder if your mom had the recessive type. That means that ALL of her children would be carriers and none would be affected unless your father also had the recessive type. The odds of that...

    Susan,
    In my case the guy was just rude and his doctor friend was rude. They did not harm me physically.

    In your case I'm not sure if they harmed you or not. If they did, it wouldn't be a waste...

    Susan,
    I think we ought to go after the psychologists(Ph.D. the D stands for Dumb) or maybe doctor in your case?! It's because of them that we have had delayed treatments! Although, I'd have a hard...

    Susan,
    I hope you make a full recovery. I'm disturbed to hear that things went wrong and so late in the healing process no less. You have hope of regaining your strength and walking ability. That's...

    I understand where you are coming from as far as there not being a treatment for a terminal illness. It greatly affects my family, however. My daughter and son have not inherited idiopathic...

    I have cervical dystonia. It pinches both the blood vessels and the nerves. The muscles involved are near the brachial plexus. But, in general, my hands aren't weak. They are more shaky and I have...

    Linda,

    Just one more thing. It's my understanding that people with CMT usually have mild scoliosis. That may be why you don't see a whole lot more of us.

    I was thinking the same exact things. Thanks ahead of time for asking them about me. I know a huge surgery would take a lot out of me. But if the nerves could be kept from dying I would recover. On...
