    You're slipping!
    Just last week researchers at USC published a study linking a 30% improvement in forelimb recovery after SCI by way of long-term gabapentin usage.
    That's right, mice given...

    One thing that definitely sucks about SCI are the number of articles friends send with the latest cures.
    They must be like "man, that Mize is a lazy spit! I keep sending him the cures but he doesn't...

    Seems like it would be very difficult to control initiation time unless the capsule is activated remotely at bowel program time, particularly for we Completes who cannot sense "spontaneous bowel...

    Don't do it.

    In fact, rethink Twion entirely. I have a set. Have had to have them repaired but the config software was pulled by the FDA so I wound up with one wheel on Eco and one on Normal...

    Puppies suck.
    Dogs are awesome.

    Stick though the puppy years and work on some training. It's worth it.
    I don't have to care for ours alone but we have three big dogs and they're just family....

    I seriously doubt my paralyzed body has lots of traditional neuro-muscular pain. I base that on the fact that it reacts to painful stimuli and I get other symptoms like increased spasticity or nerve...

    I went with a "4-shower" tankless and the only noticeable difference is never running out of hot water.

    Back to the house - drainage is too poor for traditional slab so we're back to either...

    Latest is that we're leaning slab again. With geothermal we can do a heated slab which would do wonders for keeping me from drying out in the winter owing to forced air heat.

    I'm aware of ongoing trials in the US (Mayo, UW at least), Australia and Ireland.
    Are you involved in one of these?

    Sounds like you're treating UTIs that don't need treating.

    Oxybutinin doesn't help me until the maximum dose (10 mg twice a day) and it causes drowsiness like crazy.
    Botox helps a lot, but my...

    I've tried out the transcutaneous briefly and it had some impact on my standing stability, but I had no volitional leg movement.

    There are ongoing trials for the transcutaneous stimulator,...

    If the SCI research community would work together and if we could get, say $10 billion, we could cure paralysis in likely 5-10 years.
    I think CDRF has raised a grand total of around $128 million.

    There are many, many threads on the topic of spinal cord stimulators and their various successes.
    There are many failures as well that don't get the press.

    Short version:
    If you have a...

    I walk every week and I still improve steadily after 4 years. Granted, at this rate I'll be walking independently sometime around the year 2335, but one can make progress.

    More importantly,...

    I went tankless on my current house a year back and love it. Will likely go that route with the new house as well.

    Once we learn how to reconnect the axons, then stim - transcutaneous stim - will be needed for the retraining process. Remember, if they can get the axons connected, you're essentially in a newborn...

    I wouldn't trust that review site just based on the name. Too often they're arm-length owned by one of the products they "review" as great.

    Amazing achievement. Congrats. I think often about the moves I make today and how impossible they would be were I not in some sort of shape. I look at my friend and neighbor who is 72 - 20 years my...

    The force - and hence the degree of muscle recruitment - needed to move a leg against gravity is massively more than that required to swing a leg during walking. I can swing my legs with hip-flexors...

    I've found, having recently switched from a daily routine to every other day, that less dig stim helps. It more than offsets the increase in hard stool from going to every other day. Mine are pretty...

    4 years and 1 symptomatic, treatable UTI.
    Guess I'm lucky.

    I don't condom cath, but intermittent and I think my low incidence is primarily how paranoid I am when cathing.

    I clean carefully,...

    My oldest son will run the farmish stuff and is dead set against any herbicides. His plan is to turn and then solarize the planting areas, so we won't actually have much to harvest in 2020 as he...
