Hello all I have Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy and cannot walk and have limited use of legs and my arms too only my are better than my legs for sure but I think I could get better and maybe even walk some if my legs would relax alot more and let me exercise them better and I want you guys and gals to tell me in the greatest amount of details possible anything and everything you all do to combat spasticity so (I can try and make that happen someday even with a cane or walker or for short distances I wouldn't care) and it's effects the best you can, like what treatments/meds work the best and I mean please tell me everything and please don't mention therphy or excerise as I get enough of that by doing it on my own or with help and the spasticity also any major surgery is out because my parnets are too old and battered by father time to take care of me post op so things like SDR or the balocfen pump are out k oh and Botox is out too because that helps with spasticity but makes the injected limbs weak too not what i want, i want good respondive limbs and muscles don't we all? :)and i know i'm leaving out alot of details about my cp and previous treatment efforts, surgeries, and stuff but let me tell i've tried alot of stuff and i'm getting tired of typing it's so hard for me like 2-5 words per min lol so please be as informative as you can with your replies and know that i send my thanks i dont care how crazy an approch or treatmeant or method you use or have had done it is tell me everything okay :) and i have one last question has there ever been anyone to any of your knowledge escape the wheelchair and walk no matter how good they could walk has it been done? by somebody with CP who couldn't before? hope you all can help me maybe find new ways to fight this thing i hope so because i might have a few contractures but i'm telling you all right now if i could somehow through pills (i tried oral balcofen didn't help) and exercise reduce or rid my legs and body of it's abnormal spasticity i could function alot better and there's a good chance if it was gone or reduced even midly or moderately i could then i really belive train my legs to walk and preform better it's a cruel joke as we all already know but let's not ever give up. One day CP will die i'm looking to both that day and your infromative replies sorry for all the errors in this message i hurry when i type even though i type slow make sense? :) cause it hurts :)
