Hello everyone. I have an annual ultrasound and so far so good. I have used a manual wheelchair since 1984 following the surgery. I did not lose sensation. I get terribly swollen feet. The swelling used to really go down overnight now just a little. However as soon as I put my feet down we are back to square one. Probably due to sitting and poor circulation. I put my shoes on before I put my feet down! I am not in any pain except a little from rheumatoid arthritis in my hands. I count myself very lucky and I enjoy life.
