I needed this! I have an incomplete L1 that occurred 3 months ago! I'm walking in crutches and just walked with a cane yesterday (40 ft). I have to walk with a cane to go back to work and be able to bend over in 3 months from now to get my job back. I find though that I have no balance and I have lost all muscles below my knees. My feet are still called "dead" due to I can't move them. I'm scared and am afraid of not reaching my goal.
