I am dealing with a C1-C5 lesion complicated by an earlier bout of Wet Beri Beri due to a thiamine deficiency. My lack of balance had me falling frequently even with a walker. Dec 8 I fell broke my hip and when they did repair didn't notice how bad my osteoporosis was so the repair never healed. March 26 I had total hip replacement which is when I found out how really bad my bones were. This whole illness cycle started in earnest in July 2014. I've included a few photos of the Beri Beri at its height on my wrists and legs

I am in a wheelchair all the time and can't walk at all. I want to find out if anyone has fully recovered from this level and duration of either or both conditions. I am 59 years old and copes of my medical record show my doctor waited as long as four years to do blood tests for some of these deficiencies. As a side I had taken and continue to take all supplements prescribed for me.
