Has anyone here regained use of their affected hand? I have regained so much already but my left hand (and yes I know it’s the last thing to regain) is being so stubborn and I keep weight bearing like I’m told by my OT but 2 years in and I feel I’m going nowhere
I would say I have 85% use in my left hand I still don’t have fine feeling so it’s difficult to type on a keyboard; I have to do the old hunt and peck but I can hold and do things with my left hand but it took me almost 3 years to get there
I’ve no experience of this but a documentary i saw a year ago showed a gentleman making a good recovery after 4 years, so (disappointingly in some ways) 2 years is still too short. The good news is that keeping on keeping on should get you better than you are today.
Very best wishes
Thank you Mike!! You’re one of my role models and even if it takes me a while and it’s not like before, something is something!! Tonight my left leg and foot entirely woke up!! I didn’t realize how much I missed them considering I focus on the loss of my arm and hand arm is back just the hand is so frustrating!!
Thank you Dick!! Even if you’re not experiencing it your input is great!! I understand the approximate time frames…I’m just very impatient lol!!
My left hand drives me nuts I can wear a foot brace if I need to but … therapy, therapy, therapy, I guess. I can’t do keyboard either but want to. I use right hand for it, just takes a little longer but you get the hang of it.
Has anyone had up and down days??
Mine drives me nuts too!! Hopefully one day we can be as close to normal as possible or at least comfortable with our progress. I know I am my biggest judge and still want more
