Went in the pool again today as it is what the physiotherapist suggests to help build up muscles again. Mainly walking sideways - I think it is meant to build up the glutes. I also do specific arm exercises and squats and leg stretches daily. They are kind of like exercises for seniors, but hey I'm getting there. The rehabilitation specialist says it is more important to do exercises for a person with myositis than a person without, to build up the muscles that have not wasted. There is a large inward mark on my right thigh which is muscle wasting as large as the palm on my hand. It took me ages to find out what it was as the G.P. and rheumatologist did not know.
