I'm starting a bucket list and this is at the very top (pun intended).  Something to aspire to, certainly. LaughingCongratulations on making the successful climb.  And thank you for sticking around on the site to give input and encouragement, though you're clearly SO much better now.

Well, what can I say, Bo? Fantastic! Wonderful achievement. A round of applause for that girl.CoolWhen you mentioned " ...  some here are having difficulties with walking at the moment" I kinda had the feeling that your thoughts may have included me. Yes I have indeed had my troubles in that department. You climbed 185 feet: WOW!SurprisedOne thing that I haven't been able to work out is this: if "Before you’re allowed up there, you have to confirm that you have no medical problems and are not taking any medication" how did you get up there? Even if my legs were a lot better, I still couldn't have got up there: I just can't lie!InnocentOnce again, well done that girl! WinkG.

Well done Bo! The heat and humidity would have been much too much for me: the palm house at Kew Gardens was too much at ground level, let alone that high up.............Sarah 

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Wow Bo, you are doing a great job recovering and giving hope to others behind you,  many thanks and keep posting- Love  S

diagnosed RRMS 2000 - had v little trouble til 2009 when changed to SPMS - since then things got steadily worse.   Had ccsvi procedure 3 times, helped with general fatigue but did nothing for walking - started abx 24.08.2

Congratulations!I am dizzy just looking at the photo...I have just completed 2 years and my walking continues to deteriorate SO it is wonderful to hear how you started improving in your 3rd year.Thanks for giving me hope that walking improvement may still happen!I wish you success with the brain improvements you are hoping for!

I know that some here are having difficulties with walking at the moment, so I wanted to post this image, as I thought it might help give hope.Not a lighthouse this time – instead, I climbed to the top of the viewing platform in the Rainforest Biome at the Eden Project in Cornwall.  The platform is 180 feet (55 metres) high.  And it was 50 degrees and 50% humidity at the top.  I was very happy to be able to manage this and loved every moment of it!Before you’re allowed up there, you have to confirm that you have no medical problems and are not taking any medication.  As though I was going to let that stop me!Just a reminder – my walking did continue to get worse for the first three years on CAP – so never stop hoping!  I’m still bewildering by the improvements which there have been.All we need now is for all the brain stuff to start sorting itself.....
