    Thank you....

    OK, bare with me, still recovering with the help of some pain meds..
    My level was T-7/8, 100% complete, my spinal cord was almost severed Dr. Vital has told me... I have a standing wheelchair and do my own PT. Considering my options for the future at this point regarding more intense PT.

    Superstar, thanks for sharing this news with us. If you don't mind, where have you recovered sensation? I assume you also had surgery to remove cells from your olfactory gland, can you describe that procedure in terms of pain and scent recovery? Did Dr. Lima give you a prognosis, how much are you expected to recover based on your level of injury?

    Thanks again.

    There was a ear, nose, and throat doctor that removed the cells from my nose. I felt zero pain in my nose after surgery, all I could think about was chocolate milk and the wonderful people went out of the hospital around nine or ten p.m. and got me some as soon as it was safe for me to drink some.... It was the best chocolate milk I have ever had!!!
