    Springvile Girl, there are many posts regarding the Stem Cells Inc clinical trial that at Balgrist hospital. I don't know any more than what I and others have posted. It is a legitimate clinical trial. On the other hand, I am surprised that they are charging for the trial and this is the first that I have heard of the cost. Wise.
  3. awe, thanks!!!

    Not a good thing to happen!!!!!!! I used to have a horse yrs ago but kinda just let him get old and die and we never got another, went to Go-Karts then onto m-cycles.
    No luckily I am NOT paralyzed I'm a T12 incomplete. Yes after getting out of the hospital it took them 3 days just to get me out of the bed and into a wheelchair. I was in rehab for 30 days the first time but was in a chair for alost 4 months before I could shed it. After my back surgery I had to go back"rehab"for another 14 days. But all the damage had done been done to me. while in the rehab for the fisrt time I lost control of my Bowels and bladder 2 weeks into it and they finally called in a nurologist. that's who ordered a MRI and finally found my burst. Check out memebers picture gallery and you can see a picture of my m-cycle.
  6. if u go into my album u will see the oak branch i ducked gathering cattle.
    the boulders underneath the branch, my gelding had to pop his hind legs over those, when he did, my shoulder hit the branch, the saddle kept me in, and i got a compression fracture, paralyzed right there, couldn't take my feet out of the stirrups. thinking, crap, now i could get dragged. two other people gathering helped me get off my horse. one held the horse, i grabbed the other around the neck and she pulled me off. Little did i know how gross dead weight was going to feel hitting the ground. In a perfect world, i needed a 3rd person for my lower body, but that wasn't the case. deep canyon, way in the mountains. my spine was pulled to the side with such force, the doctor's said they had never seen anything like it. 1200 lb horse, human in between 6in or so diameter oak branch.
    back is going to lose. are you paralyzed? u mentioned going to therapy etc before the surgery?

    Hate to hear about what happened to you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really sad!!! I told them with me it was broke when I was laying in the hi-way cause I had broken L4 & 5 when I was 13 so I knew what a broken back felt like but when they flew me to a trauma canter it went out the window! I was walking with a T12 burst fracture!!! the therapist were getting pissed off when I would come back from therapy and lay back down! Hell it hurt so bad I had too wonder they didn't paralize me right then and there! You know Dr's should have to answer to someone!!! No excuse for them NOT treating you right then and there!!! My back surgeon brought his team in on a Saturday after Thanksgiving to do mine and like I say it had already been like 55 days by that time!! Sure hope you get some relief from the new DR!!!!!!! I know Arndog and I have talked several times here about pain!!

    She's doing ok had a whiplash ans some problems with her hand possibly a broken bone they have treated it that way, you would think form x-rays they would be able to tell but then again............ they missed my burst fracture for 50 days!! I hate friday 13's!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not real sure how I did the picture thing, my old computer wont let me up-load anymore my long beard has been gone for at least 10 months now!!! WISH i COULD BE OF MORE HELP!!! Any kind of questions you have feel free to ask!
  10. how do i post a picture (i tried uploading one yesterday but am not techy enough) could only put them in the album.
  11. hello, i'm not superstitious either, but it was pretty weird. I remember thinking about it, pretty ironic. And after 6 yrs, this august fell on the 13th again. No meaning, just interesting. How is your wife?
