Six Years Later - Part 1

I missed the actual anniversary by two days. On April 29th, 2010, I was "liberated". Soon after that I saw big improvements in several symptoms: in particular my autonomic functions,  my balance, my fatigue. Previous to the procedure, I was expecting to be in a wheelchair within a year. So where are things six years on? Well, there's good news and bad news. 

First the good news. My autonomic functions are still way better than they had been prior to my procedure. I haven't seen my urologist in years: he told me to only come back if things got worse again - and they haven't. My fatigue, while it's often enough a problem, is still way better than it was on April 28th, 2010. My balance is finally getting worse again, though probably still a little better than before the procedure. I'm still not in a wheelchair. 

The bad news? Well, there's quite a bit with respect to those things that the liberation procedure didn't help in the first place. However, I'll leave that for my Part 2 of this series of posts.


  1. Wow is just the simple word that may explain that how much I liked it. It was nicely stuffed with the material I was looking for. It’s great to be here though by chance.efamol efalex
