Re: coming up on second rebirthday...

<t>9/21 will be my first rebirthday. I too drive by the spot everyday on my home from work. Can still see the dent in the guardrail.<br/> <br/> At least there isn't a little cross there that somebody brings flowers to on my birthday. Seen too many of those.<br/> <br/> Like others, I refuse to let th...

Re: Hello to all from a fellow TBPI person

<t>Greetings Ms. Stang-<br/> Sorry to hear of your injuries. AS stressed by others, you need to get to a BPI specialist ASAP. <br/> <br/> I know exactly what you mean about the neurologist talking in circles. The fellow I saw (3 months post-injury) told me he expected I'd get a full return within a ...

Re: has anyone had movement after surgery

<t>troy- i just passed the 3 month post-op mark, but I still have litte improvement.

Re: Motorcycle accidents.

<t>Without getting into formal definitions, it basically means publicly-funded healthcare systems. They are more popular in Europe. Basically, the government funds a large portion of your healthcare expenses. It's not "free" because countries with these programs generally have higher taxes. <br/> <b...

Re: YOU CAN HELP CURE PARALYSIS NOW

Thanks Chris. Made my donation.

Re: Several ? about the recovery process..muscle spasms

<t>Hi Troy-<br/> I'm just curious whether they are planning on doing grafts or nerve transfers? It seems that grafts have fallen out of favor a bit, at least here in the US, unless the nerve injury itself is relatively small. <br/> <br/> Best of luck. I am just about 3 months post-op from multiple n...

Re: Long term specialists

<r>Minnie-<br/> I read an article on the HSS website of one of Dr. Wolfe's patients who he treated some 18 years post-injury. There isn't a lot of information on how extensive the damage was, but here's the article:<br/> <URL url="http://www.hss.edu/12221.asp">http://www.hss.edu/12221.asp</URL><br/>...
