In May 2014 I started to have difficulty with balance and walking. I had weakness and incoordination issues with my legs, exaggerated reflex, bladder and sexual sensitivity troubles.
By september 2014 I was getting surgery with spinal cord cleaning and vertebrae fusion. I was told that i might not totally come back to my "normal" physical shape because of nerves injuries.
At first it was like re learning everything, going fackie on a skateboard was something that my brain and muscles couldn't agreed on anymore. I felt that if I had been waiting too long before rehab, my muscle memory will disappear for good.
I did a lot of physic then back to outdoor first with roadbike, then snowboarding to work on my legs, then surfing for the back and the neck and more lately skateboarding for balance and lower legs.
Too many bmx crashes as a kid and too much computer as an adult seems to be the roots of my injury. I feel very lucky to be able to do sport again and can't thank enough all of my family, friends and medical staffs for all the support !!!
This essay is about hardwork, dedication and my comeback.
