Thanks. There is a point where I may need to consider living with paralysis.
My doctor sees stem cells on the horizon but they need to be mine.
Last year was the year of fear. Since I needed surgery so I would not be paralyzed
I cn undersnd the fear. Ive had 3 DVT's and it is lke walkn around with a timebomb. No surgeries can fix this. Ive had 2 major hernia surgeries and the dr didnt inform me of the muscle rehab and so I cant lift anything now. I hpe U got ur surgery.
Yes I had it last year. They had to pull my skull off my brainstem and then reconstruct the first 6 veritable of my cervical spine.
It saved my life but the damage it caused to my nervous system is a bit too much.

Do you understand that being paralyzed means you are in severe pain?
And depending on the level of the spine impacted you would be on a breathing machine. The spine controls everything. I should know since part of my spine is damaged
