Wednesday January 14th I had my clinic visit at Hershey Medical Center. Everything was pretty much as expected with my legs and arms. I can still bear weight for a short period but I'm not able to walk. My arms and hands are much weaker than last visit but still functional. My speech is somewhat slower and sometimes have difficulty pronouncing words. The most exciting thing is my breathing function is still very good. My FVC is at 94% which is very good. The range of motion exercises I'm doing is keeping my legs more flexible and not as spastic.
Some recommendations from the clinic included a better mattress to reduce pressure sores, range of motion on a daily basis, and maybe a lift to aid with transfers.
When we where leaving I met a fellow PAL (people with als) that I've communicated with through the web site Patients Like Me. It was nice to chatting with him.
