If you had to chose would you rather lose a limb or be paralyzed


In light of seeing people recovering from The bombing in Boston and losing a limb which is worse, losing a leg or being paralyzed.

    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

    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

    Thank you . I'm doing research based on personal issues. I will write a hub on it one day. I'd rather lose a limb. Unfortunately I may need to figure out what to do if I ever need to face the other.
