When I saw my ALS Specialist a few weeks back, she said she didn't see any atrophy. I'm not sure what her definition of atrophy is, but I weigh 20 lbs less than a year ago, and didn't have any fat to lose (I'm 6' 7" and weight 135lbs). My calves probably having atrophied, but I've lost a lot of muscle all throughout my body. She's going to redo the EMG on July 16th to see if there has been any progression. I started Ceftriaxone again the other night, but I still maybe having reactions to it. I'm just getting worse, breathing worse, and no answers. This process is too slow, and it's so easy to just give up.
