Thank you for your reply MFSR, like you said recovery is very slow! I am still on 1 crutch at the moment and still cannot ride. I was put off with what I read on the net, it seemed very mixed and a lot was quite negative but maybe I was just on the wrong sites. I feel very positive that it will improve but will never be quite what it was.
I had a bit of a breakthrough a couple of days ago, I managed for the first time in about 10 months to lift my leg up off the bed, whilst lying down and keeping it straight! It was such a small thing but so significant to me.
You sound to be much further along in your recovery, are you able to ride now?
