Last year I had a life changing injury that left me feeling defeated. My sciatic nerve was injured during surgery which left me with total paralysis of my right leg. At first I was in a wheelchair for 8 weeks then a walker and then was able to walk with just a brace on my right leg. I was told by doctors that I would never be able to walk again without a brace. I was devastated by the news, as my whole life I had been physically active. At one time I owned a gym and a fitness certification organization. I even participated in a bikini bodybuilding competition days before my 50th birthday and won top 3 in 4 different categories. Since the doctors left me with a feeling of no hope in November of 2017, I began self destructive behaviors of eating too much, crying all of the time, taking prescription medication to drown my sorrow (although I said I needed it for pain) and wound up gaining over 40 pounds and feeling like crap. Then I remembered I am a child of God and he has the last say. So, I started seeing alternative therapy and the feeling in my leg from my hip to ankle had returned. Good had lead me to alternative practitioners who have helped my leg in returning to almost normal function. Thanks to platelet lysate with hydrodissection from Dr. Centeno(Denver), Naprapathic treatments with Dr. Nuzzo(Santa Fe) and Synapses Performance Therapy with Steve Hanoian (California). I can now walk without the brace but my ankles are so weak and right side of my calf and right foot are still numb. However, I am now able to move my ankle and now I’m working on getting my strength back in my ankles to take off this dumb brace permanently!
