"I wanna show you guys that I'm walking, unaided. I mean, I'm not walking perfectly but at least I'm up on my feet," she said while filming herself. "I'm feeling better. I'm able to walk pretty well.

Jenna Jameson/Instagram The milestone comes just under a month since Jameson revealed she was finally able to walk with a walker rather than relying on her wheelchair. "Hey guys, so a little update. I am up and walking with my walker. I'm doing it with one hand right now, usually I'm a little bit more nimble," she told her followers at the time while filming herself taking a few steps. "But I'm up and about. Trying to phase out the wheelchair." Jameson previously said she was in "good spirits" and "getting stronger everyday" thanks to her consistency with physical therapy. In March, she said she was at home and in bed, but doing her best to improve after a month-long hospital stay and a misdiagnosis of Guillain-Barré. "I am slowly but surely building back strength," she said on her Instagram Story. "I am walking around — with a walker. My legs have lost a lot of muscle so I am busy trying to build it back. This has been not only physically taxing but I think, more than that, just really mentally challenging. Very mentally challenging."

Jenna Jameson/Instagram Jameson clarified at the time that she can move her legs, which she demonstrated by lifting them up while lying in bed. "As you can see, yes, I'm able to move my legs. I'm not paralyzed," she said. "I am just dealing with extreme muscle weakness. Some issues with my left nerve." She later added that the issue is in her left femoral nerve, which runs from the hip down to just above the knee and controls the surrounding muscles.

But I like a good challenge." "I am fighting, I am kicking a--, I am taking names and soon I will be back up on my feet unaided, and life will be back to normal. I mean, as normal as I can be," she added, with a laugh.
