    When did you last have an ASIA/AIS exam done? It does not sound like you actually know what your NEUROLOGIC (not orthopedic) level of injury is. It could not be C5-7. Those are likely the vertebrae you fractured. Only an ASIA exam can tell you your actual LOI (level of injury) neurologically.

    i'm a c7-t1 but got so much function back that most label me a para.
    even my PMR Dr. says i'm "off the chart" since i'm too strong to be a quad but not really a para cuz of the rod in my humerus.
    i've learned that w/ SCI everyone is different and there is not really a status-quo on function at different levels of injury.
    be thankful for what you've got
