    I often get seated quickly at restaurants when there's a long wait....

    That's horrible. Is there any way he can get a membership at a gym that has a pool? Even if he just goes with a friend or family member, it's better than nothing. Any aquatic therapy is amazing.

    My condolences. Your son is very lucky - his injury isn't a cervical one, his injury sounds like it's an incomplete one, and he can walk. As soon as his spinal shock wears off, I'd bet he'll regain...

    I sure hope it works for me tomorrow. I'm so uncomfortable right now. I even tried using a magic bullet 30 minutes or so after the enemeez failed to work and nothing happened.

    The gov't needs to get rid of that "grandfathered in" clause. It's a load of bullshit and just gives businesses/places an excuse to be lazy and discriminatory toward us wheelchair users.

    My accident happened when I was 11, but it took me until high school for it to really sink in that I was really paralyzed. I would say it didn't hit home until I was probably 16 or 17.

    Thanks, I'll try searching for it. I'm 2.5 weeks post-op and usually I'm back to normal by now. They've even got me taking senna-s post-op, still having problems. It's frustrating.

    And thank you all for your feedback on your experiences. I was definitely imagining a big old needle instead of an acupuncture-type needle. That helps...a bit. Still a needle tho.
