My sister had a bike accident three months ago (surgery 2 months ago to remove the disc that was compressing her spinal cord).

She has central cord syndrome and a spinal contusion at C4. She walks (a little unsteady) and has decent return in her arms/hands (right side weak).

She did have some bleeding (hemorrhage) in the spinal cord.

Long story short. She is horribly depressed and we just got her feeling a little better (with her progress, etc) and then she went to her Neuro doc today and he said that the "heaviness" in her arms will "never go away." She's taking this as a sentence that it will never get BETTER.

Thoughts?

Is there a chance it will get better or does the hemorrhage make it impossible?

Thanks so much!!
