Default Re: Loss of use of limb

The way my neurologist explained it to me was if it takes 200 neurons to walk and they begin dying off one at a time, walking will become gradually more difficult. With 199 of the 200 gone, walking could still be possible but a struggle. When that last neuron goes, walking goes with it. Based on my progression, this simple description has been pretty accurate.

As Laurie said, do a little homework before your trips and be as prepared as you can for any setbacks. If you have a plan in place, that might reduce your worries and allow you to enjoy the cruises even more.
