    Introduction

    Hi I am Shona and was diagnosed with MND in November 2020. Although I have been having tests/biopsy/EMG. for several years as I had foot drop and had lots of falls resulting in fractures. Up until Tibia/Fibia fractures in Noverber 2020. I could walk with wheeler. Since then I can no longer stand or walk having to use a patient turner with my husband helping, to move around and transfer to wheelchair etc.

            Do you know which type of MND you have?

            It sounds as if your tib-fib fracture healed well as you're back on your feet, albeit with a walker.

            Stay safe - no more falls πŸ˜‰
