I was at the dr's office the other day and I was stopped by a nurse on the elevator. She asked me what happened that put me in a wheelchair. I was a little annoyed at first but then she went on to explain that she had been in a wheelchair for 5 years following a car accident and had an indwelling catheter etc etc. And then one day, it all came back and she was able to walk again. She was walking completely normally, I wouldn't be able to tell she had a spinal cord injury by looking at her.

Is this kind of thing possible, or was this nurse just trying to instill some hope?
