    Wise,am digging the hair cut, it is the first I've seen the photo.

    You look so "young" and fresh.
  2. Can I please request that people post these questions in the forums, instead of to my visitor messages. I don't often check my visitor messages and would rather post long answers in the main carecure forums, if possible. I check the Cure Forum daily. Wise.
  3. Jennifer,

    Your description does sound like that of a cauda equina. The spinal cord typically ends at L1. In some people, it can extend into L2. An L1 vertebral injury is likely to damage the conus (the tip of the spinal cord) and some of the spinal roots that are emanating from the conus at L1. It should produce a "saddle-shape" distribution of sensory loss and paralysis of most of the muscle groups innervated by the sacral segments, including the lower legs. You should be getting back some of your hip flexors and even your quadriceps (which are from your L2-5 spinal cord segments). I posted a long piece about diagnosing cauda equina syndrome some time ago. I did a search for them. You might be interested in the following threads.

    Dear Dr. Young,
    I was in a car accident in July last year, where I suffered an injury at L1. I went into surgery immediately and was fused from t11to L3, and was told that I "crunched" my nerves. I was at in patient therapy when they told me I presented as a cauda equina case. I have no spastisity, I can feel down to my hips and have full function to that point as well. As of late I have hip flexors rating at a 2- and getting stronger, adductors at a 2-and gluetes at a rating of 1. Last couple of weeks my quads have been firing as I take steps in my braces and doing squats on a total gym.
    My question is, am I really cauda equina? And if so what should I typically expect and if not then what?
    I'm very new to this injury and still so confused
    Thank you for your time

    Dr Wise Young.
    Thanks for the reply.
    I did read through your information on the complexity of issues with the cauda equina with regards to damaging the cauda equina and damaging also the dorsal nerve roots. It looks as the problems I had to do with damaging the cauda equina are repairing, only after extensive exersize and keeping at it. Nerve roots I am not so lucky.
    Is there anything I can do to encourage more research in this area in the USA?
    Cell transplantations sounds good, I hope you have some success even a little would be a help. Thanks again. Karl.os

    Thanks Doc! I am doing pretty good right now and getting ready to go down to the 12 mcg patch Monday, The spasm's and burning finally let up! still bothered with a few spasm's but it's tolerable now. I just hope the Lyrica takes care of what pain I have had in my legs to be able to get off that patch, they really scare me! and I have been on them going on 7 yrs now that's long enough! thank's again!!!

    Hi Dr Wise Young.
    Quite a large forum site. Question I would like to ask . I had severe nerve root damage Cauda Equina L4 (hip flex) both right and left side (more on the right). Do you know of any treatments that may institute an improvement or a fix in the world? Now or up and coming. New Zealand is a small place. I have read through a lot of information on this site and others looks like hope may be the only answer. I need crutches to walk after about 50 yards. I did read through information on Lower Thoracic and Cauda Equina Injuries you posted 13 may 2005. I thank you for your time.

    My second question is should she undergo this treatment with the Tiantan Puhua hospital? The senior specialists Dr. Wu Li Ke and Dr. Wang Xiao Juan have left the hospital and opened the Wu Stem Cells Medical Centre

    I thank you in advance for the constructive advice.

    Hi Dr. Young, first of all I would like to express gratitude over what you have done to help the SPI communities. Your advice, I believe, have helped many others who are in need. As for me, I'm also trying to help. My friend's mom has been diagnosed with ALS, and since the diagnosis, she has been experiencing muslce wasting on her left arm, muscle twitching and cramps, pins and needles, and also severe depression. Recently, some friends advised her to go for stem cell treatment in China. We have found this Tian Tan Puhua hospital in Beijing, and it seems that they, particularly Dr. Wu Li Ke and Dr. Wang Xiao Juan, have treated over 300 patients with difficult diseases. My first question is should my friend's mom undergo this treatment in China? I heard the combination of stem cell treatment and TCM (acupuncture, chinese medicine, etc) has better recovery result.

    Hello Dr. Young, my name is David Black and in the past I asked you about clinical trials. I am a 29 yr. old T-10 who has been a paraplegic for over 3 yrs. I was scanning the internet for stem cell surgery for chronic SCI and I found that you were leading in clinical trials in Albany and St. Louis. I want to be in one of them regardless of the consequences. I found a contact person but the email would not go through. Can you point me in the right direction? Give me a number or a contact person? All I want is a chance. Thank you.- David Black

    Hello.I got TM 2 years ago and I'm recovering succesfully. My doctors told me last time when I went to hospital that I will fully recover because they began treatment on the first day i came to hospital. I was wondering how can i get stronger cause my muscles were fully atrophied and my progress is pretty slow. I will start with electrical muscle stimulation due to my physical therapist recomendation. I'll post more when I see how progressing will it be. I was wondering if u have some advices for me... If u got please e-mail me on ty for understanding.

    Hi Doc, I got a question. I been trying to go off the fentanyl patches, from a 50 to a 25 that I'm on now and am going to try the 12 next time. But now I am noticing the back of my thighs "hamstrings" sometimes the muscles are so tight they kind spasm but now I am having quite alot of burning there. Somteimes it keeps me awake, and I am wondering if this could be nerve pain or what? My Dr. really has No idea on this stuff, and I think is just kinda winging it with me. I have had to go off it because of loosing my prescription coverage and to get my cost's down to where I can afford them. I have been put on Lyrica for my feet and lower legs taking 150mg 3 x dailey. guess I am trying to figure what is the burning now? Any ideas?
    Also Thanks again for giving us this place to learn about our problems, and having help from everyone here, you and the SCI nurses!!!

    Hi Dr. Young
    I posted a thread in the cure forum about transected cords but have gotten no response so I have decided to write to you directly. I just recently had my first MRI and was told that for the most part my spinal cord had been transected at the t10 t11 level with just minimal residual normal cord at t10 t11. With that being said does this basically disqualify me from any "cell therapy" if a breakthrough were to occur in that area. Also, do you have any insight into PN grafts. I was told by my neurologist the MRI revealed that my spinal cord above my t10 level is normal and below my t11 region is normal. Does that make some type bridge bypassing the injured part of my cord more feasible for someone in my condition if and when that breakthrough happens. Thank you.

    dear wise,
    Sunday am a good friend of my son, Noah, was injured C4-C7 in a diving accident. He is currently in hospital in Albany, NY hoping to move to Craig asap. It appears at this time that his injury is incomplete-he has some sensation in hands and toes. He has been removed from initial vent.
    Since this injury is still "acute", do you know if the Cethrin trials are still going on or if it is possible or plausible to check this out. Do you have any recommendations for treatment at this early time that might help him.
    This is just so devistating...such a high injury. Any help you can offer would be so appreciated.
    Best to you.

    Hello Dr. Young,
    I have been following a blog by a man called Lucas Smith in Dehli India under the care of a Dr. called Ashish who has been giving Lucas 50 million stem cells through injections twice a day in the thoracic area. Lucas says he feels new sensation, but they fade away later. It appears Lucas is a quadrapeligicc, but says he is making progress. I am a parapeligic and already feeling tingling and needle like feelings in my legs. I was wondering if you have any information on this. I have a friend who is a physician and is going to India this month and he will check up on this for me. I value your inner thoughts. For now, I have ordered an easystand with glider to help me stand for long periods of time. I would appreciate any thoughts you may have.

    Is an avm considered an incomplete or a complete sci? I had surgery to remove and glue vessels in 9/08 after a year and a half of being misdiagnosed with TM. Is recovery lessened by the amount of time past before surgery? T7-8 was the original location of injury.

    Hi dr. Young
    i finally got my cat scan back from when i injured 4 1/2 years ago. Can you please help give me some clarity. This is the neurologist impression in regards to the injury.
    Ct scan of thoracic spine
    axial images were taken through the thoracic spine. Sagittal and coronal reconstructions were performed.

    There is evidence of an old fracture at t11. There is a horizontally directed lucency extending from anterior to posterior direction to the right side of the vertebrae and appears to extend through the right pedicle; this appears to represent the site of the bullet tract. Some reparative bone formation is seen to the right side of the t11 and t10 vertebrae. There is a schmorl's node deformity at the superior end plate of t12. No other fracture is identified. There does not appear to be degenerative changes. There is minimal levoscoliosis in the lower thoracic spine. There appears to be minimal dextroscoliosis in the upper thoracic spine. There is evidence of right sided neural foraminal narrowing at t11-t12 due to the traumatic changes. Some bony callus formation is seen along the right side of the t10-t11 region. Does this mean i have spinal stenosis?

    Dr. Young, can you please explain this to me in laymen's term. Thank you.

    In April 2007, I began falling down. May 07, I was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. After a year and a half of being misdiagnosed I found out I had an AVM on the spinal cord in T7-8 region. Had surgery to remove avm and glue vessel. Since then my legs have been burning. After semtember 2008 surgery I can now tighten my legs and hold them. I know much time went by before surgery, but is there a chance of regaining 70% of function so I can walk again. My quads are weak, but quiver when working with the PT. This is so rare that I can not find much about recovery. Swelling gone, but thinning of spinal cord were damage was.Please respond.

    Dr Wise. My son lost the sight in his right eye about 1 month ago due to blunt trauma caused by an air soft pellet shot directly into his eye. I know that this message board is more about SCI but I have been doing research for optic nerve repair for the last month and dont know who would be considered the leading expert in the field. I thought since you are considered a leader in your own field you might be able to direct me to someone that knows all of the options i might have for using stem cells to allow my son to see with his eye again. There is no impulses getting back to the brain through the optical nerve so I dont know of any other treatment that would even hold the potential of him regaining vision. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jason/"JoeHowla"

    Thank you Dr. Wise. I appreciate your wise counsel. Also, I was told I have a t11-t12 complete injury because I have no real feeling or movement below the sight of the injury, but if i rub my stomach or the sides of my stomach I could feel it real good down my legs and in my feet. And it feels good. I can tell there is some type of connection still there. Moreover, when I concentrate hard and I can make my feet and/or my toes move. I think it's a light spasm which causes my digits to move, but its done at will. It is painful though. Is this normal for my type of injury or is it possible that my injury is not complete?

    Also, are you familiar with a doctor name Dr. William H. Rader who does fetal cell therapies in the dominican Republic. His company is called Metra. I talked to him personally and he said he has a high success rate with his fetal stem cells for a whole host of illnesses from C.P to spinal cord injuries. I talked to a lady whose daughter that suffers from C.P and was treated with Dr. Rader's fetal stem cells. She told me that her daughter recovered close to 60% of her brain capacity. Of course his fee is $30,000. Dr. Young is this believable? Dr. Rader says the fetal cells are delivered through an iv and subcutaneously into the abdomen. And it takes 45minutes for the procedure.

    Dear Dr. Young.
    I have been following your work for some time now. I am very impressed and appreciative of your efforts in sci research. I have a complete t11-t12 spinal cord injury, as a result of a gunshot wound. The bullet lodged in my chest. Because of this i was not given a mri, so the extent of the damage to my spinal cord was never determined. I was however given a cat scan. I was told that my spinal cord was not severed but that the force of the bullet shook my spinal cord creating my paralysis. My spine itself was fractured. I had to wear a back brace for three months. Even though i have no motor or sensory sensation, i can concentrate and create a light spasm which causes my toes to move just by trying to move my toes. Also, when i rub my side or stomach i can feel it good in my legs or groin area depending on where i rub. My question to you is how can i find out the true extent of nerve damage i incurred as a result of my injury, and your overall thoughts about my injury according to the info i provided you. I personally think that maybe the fractured pieces of my spine may have caused stenosis of my spinal cord. Your input is highly valued and appreciated. Thank you.

I would really like to get involved with something like that. Having had the brain injury I have not been able to run, just to run. However, I have been taking a 1-5 mile walk a day and today I chose to push myself a little harder and run a little. I may look like an idiot if anyone saw me, be I'm pushing myself to improve and possibly even over come my disabilities.

    It dwells in lowly places that all disdain.
    That is why it is so near to Tao.

    It just rememinds me how much verbal abuse you take here from people who are hurting (or just out of their minds ) and you just pretend it wasn't meant to hurt you. I guess it's because most of it isn't. It's all just frustration and you understand that. It's just another reason for the world who benefit from what you're doing to be thankful you represent our future hope to what physically once was.
    *wanted to fix typos and add that I wouldn't be surprised you if screamed at your computer or to yourself in the car; everyone has their limits.*
    Thanks! Just wanted to share that with you.
