Doctor: “You’re getting better fast”

Such was my MS doctor’s opinion today. I told him I’m not feeling better. He is confident that feeling better is coming soon. He said I should expect to need the walker for about a month and to use it even if I feel I don’t need it until PT gives permission to stop. His feeling about the constant annoying buzz in my legs is that it probably means damaged nerves are healing. Obviously feeling is better than no feeling, even if it’s a terrible feeling. He said when I first got on the rehab floor I was “in bad shape.” Good to hear, because that’s how it felt to me.

So overall pretty good news today. We’re tweaking a medication to see if I can get relief from constant and intense fatigue, but doc is pleased with my progress, which is really good to know.
