This is the most wonderful stretch.
I do this stretch several times a day. I can now sit in the lotus position again 1 1/2 years after tx.
Do this in the morning to elongate your muscles. Really amazing how much better you will feel.
Do not stop moving during and after tx, try to work out with light weights and light exercise. Just keep going.
My scans are clear, going for anascope on Monday, waiting for colonscopy scheduling to call me. Boy I am going to feel clean on the inside.
Ahhhh!!!! So if you remember I was really struggling for the past year and a half. I was diagnosed with ataxia in march and began using a cane to protect myself and others. Doctors had signed me off, dead in 10 years. Well, I felt bad, but not that bad. I had begun to slur my speech along with staggering drunken walk and the falling to the ground. I was a mess physically and mentally. I kept searching and searching for the answer on the Internet. If it wasn't for the Internet, I think I could be dead now. I finally found a link and discovered I had a chemical induced ataxia, due to the minocycline I had been taking for at least 7 years. 3 weeks ago, I stopped taking and the symptoms have started to reverse. I may be left with some permanent brain damage. I will know in about a year. I am back working, surfing and looking forward to a future!
The one thing I have learned is KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
