Here is My Question:
I was hospitalized with a UTI. While in the hospital I contracted Norovirus. I have PPMS. I can no longer stand or walk, despite 4 months of rehabilitation. I am only just beginning to shuffle step my feet. Will I regain any more mobility?
We are so sorry to hear about your hospitalization; your recovery process will depend on two things:
I generally treat the acute infection using the most appropriate antibiotic or antiviral treatment (assuming one is available) and then give people with MS a course of high dose steroids if they are not recovering fast enough. You may want to discuss this treatment option with your physicians.
