Advice & Tips: Since getting this placed in Dec. 2011, my legs are not tight at all. im bendy! I cant walk though or stand, like I used to do,even if for a few feet,before this was placed. I relied on the tone aka spasticity to stand, so I traded it for not being able to walk at all but in more comfort. I miss being able to stand and use my legs. I now have muscle atrophy since my legs seem to just be limbs I dont need. but with my current UTI, tone has kicked in, even with the pump, and i hate it! My spasticity was severe enough to where strong adults would break out in a sweat just trying to bend my legs.
