I had a bi-lateral pontine stroke in october 2011. I was well on my way to recovery. Walking without assistance, exercising, hiking, swimming. About six months later, I started experiencing weakness in my legs. 3 months later and I cannot walk without a walker. The doctors have diagnosed as Wallarian Degeneration. Has anyone had a similar issue? thanks, Steve - Santa Rosa, CAView Thread
Has anyone used HBOT therapy for stroke? If so, what was outcome? I have substantial weakness in legs, mild weakness in arms and marked spacicity resulting from a Bi-lateral R>L pontine infarction causing damage to the L>R corticospinal tracts in October 2011View Thread
