Health "progress"

Got told today that my swallow response is not progressing and it is possible I may NEVER be able to eat normally. I have been given a series of exercises aimed at helping to correctly position the larynx.Only lots of time will tell.

My return home full time is likely to be in the new year after more therapy on my walking and writing.All the hard word on speech would be at home.

Hi Roger, Seeing a post from you is always great and although the news within may not be what we want to hear its still lovely to see you posting. I am sure you will give everything 100pct like you usually do and I hope progress speeds up for you. Hope to see you experimenting again soon.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Great to see a new post Roger. Having had similar events inside my family let me say you seem to be making great progress even if it may not seem so to you. I know it can all be very frustrating and slow to you.
One thing I have learned is that personal determination and effort is a very important factor in recovery.

Good luck and 73's

Roger, try not to let anything get you too down. My partner fell off her mountain bike and dislocated her shoulder, so far not so bad. roll on the a and e, burning sensation in the arm in the 4th attempt at reloaction. result, damaged brachial plexus - no sensation/movement in the whole arm. with time and a lot of hard work imagining things, movement has returned to all but thumb oposition (had a tendon transfer to help) we still decided to have a nipper, and dispite initial concerns all is well. the brain is a very plastic thing and can re-learn stuff quite well. some BPi people ahve a nerve transfered from the pectoral muscle to work the biceps and the brain has to re-learn that. hope you get home for xmas. take care
