Our dear friends son broke his back this past saturday. It was his t12 and after 9 hrs of surgery he is plated with rods from the T9 to L1. He has feeling to his knees but then on down is sharp pains only. He hasn't moved but I'm not sure if thats normal immediantely after surgery, I'm not sure if they have even asked him to. We are at a loss for what to do or say, it has been a very long weekend,,He is 17yrs old.
