It's been quite some time since my last post. I hope all of you in the sci world are working on getting the most out of your life. Some days you may feel like you can not handle your new life but don't give up. I'm doing quite well after 8 months. I can walk unassisted and my stamina will allow me to do so for over a mile. I still have LOTS of pain but I am very thankful for my progress. I will probably have a spinal stimulator trial in the next week or so. If anyone has gone through this please give some advice or your personal experience. I believe things will continue to improve. I wish the sexual part would return but I'm coping. Thank you guys for your incouragement. Live life to the fullest!!!
