Hi Vania Elmeera,
The condition you experience where there is paralysis of the limbs in medical language is called paraplegia. Lower limb paraplegia is most often caused by injury or damage to the spinal nerves (the nerves that run in the spine), but can also be caused by a brain tumor, infection of the brain or spinal cord, a history of brain deprivation for a long time, stroke, or congenital abnormalities. Minor blows to the nose generally do not cause paralysis, but if the blow is strong enough to cause severe head injury or damage to the brain center that controls the lower limbs, paralysis may occur. Not being able to walk for 4 years of course will also have an impact on the constituents of the limbs, for example, muscle mass loss occurs, pressure sores (decubitus ulcers), skin diseases, etc.
To find out a definite diagnosis of the condition you are experiencing, more complete information is needed from the results of clinical and supporting examinations including blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, MRI, EMG, etc., therefore it is advisable to consult further with a neurologist regarding the condition you are experiencing (if not already done). This information will help determine the best treatment for you, although the possibility of walking again should be discussed further with the doctor who treats you later. Doctors can recommend doing physiotherapy to train the muscles and improve blood circulation to the lower limbs.
Some other things you need to pay attention to:
ask your family for help regularly every 2-3 hours to change your position (eg tilt your body to the left side then turn to the right side) to prevent pressure sores. Also do leg movements with assistance. These exercises can be learned in physiotherapy sessions. Always try to bask in the morning sun (maximum at 9 am) do a light massage on the legs. Keep the legs clean, use moisturizers on both lower limbs to prevent dry skin, consume nutritious food regularly. Hope this information is useful.
