It has taken five years to understand a few things about the “new” me.
The sole of my left foot is numb 99% of the time, meaning I can’t feel the ground beneath my foot which= HAZARD! The other 1% of the time Lefty’s sole is ultra sensitive. A tiny rock in my shoe produces piercing pain which shoots all way up my leg and sears my brain.
Until Lida’s fingertips redevelop tactile feeling it will be difficult to grasp things in day to day activities.
I cannot hold what I cannot feel.
These short-circuited nerves will probably remain numb until something in my head clicks back into place. Perhaps electric stimulation therapy will improve the connection between my left extremities and my brain. No one really knows.
