    I think there's a decent chance it will restore some function, although I don't know how much.
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    It's been defined here on this website years ago, you want me to search it for you?

    Even if it restored complete motor and sensory function, I don't think it will ever "fix" the rest of my 32-year post-injury body.

    Think of the guy who got wasted yesterday, he may not have to go through the 32yrs of hell that you had to go through.

    Well.. the question was more like if some believe that some before dumped and thrown away blood from a umbilical cord suddenly should pop up from a hat and fix the most complex biologically system known to man, like an injured spinal cord. Really? How?

    I voted for the fix because of several reasons. The intial results have shown that this type of treatment moves your ASIA score from A to incomplete. Now that may not be a "fix" for some but for me that would be a godsend. I cannot get anybody to help an ASIA A because "there is no hope, you just have to learn to live in your wheelchair." If I could go from crappy transfers, to being able to transfer in the shower, car (whomever it is), toilet, etc. without help, I say bring it on. I feel that to totally fix a SCI will not happen in my lifetime but to be able to walk across the gym floor ( with the help of KAFO's, etc.) at my daughter's graduation (or maybe even at the volleyball parent's night her senior year) means more to me than you can imagine. To me, that is a "fix" I am looking for. Once I become an incomplete, the sky's the limit-IMHO.
