Getting Used To Being In A Wheelchair Full TimeI have been a part time wheelchair user for several years due to scoliosis and chronic pain. Over the past year my condition has worsened and since January I have been using the chair full time. I've been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, as a complication of the spinal fusion surgery I had (twice; at age 18 and 28). I now have partial paralysis from the waist down, along with a number of added complications including incontinence. Surgery to relieve the stenosis might be possible but I've been warned that it's a temporary solution only.
