I have various spinal issues including severe degenerative disc disease, multiple areas of spinal stenosis and have had operations and pain management for 4 years. Unfortunately on 3/4/07 I was rushed in when my legs gave way and I became numb from the waist down. I had cauda equina and 99% spinal cord compression.
The surgeon managed to remove a vertebrae and I have some sensation returned but am left with severe nerve damage in both hips, numb left areas and from the left knee down have limited feeling with the worst damage in my foot. On top of the spinal cord injuries and scar tissue and damage I am unable to sit yet but will be working with physio to be able to bend again, I already have adaptations in the home but since this new life changing incident, we've realised just what else is required to help.
Every penny aside from the fees that gofundme take will be put towards the desperately needed following..
Electric bed (we need as soon as possible to assist in getting in and out for physio exercises)
Electric Wheelchair as soon as I can sit to be able to move around the home independently and also hopefully go to the local shops.
Ramps installed to get in and out in the chair and we're going to exchange the car for one the wheelchair can go in the back with a hoist or ramps - it's unlikely DVLA will allow me to drive again for a fair while but it is an ambition.. Even if adaptations are needed.
Please help if you are able, even a share... My family and friends are doing absolutely everything and have an amazing care plan due to the waiting list for occ health and no one available to help us.
It would genuinely mean the world.
Happy to provide medical proof /pics/updates as often as possible.
