    He made a bit of a splash claiming to do nerve grafts. I don't hear anything about his grafts anymore.

    Do you guys know anyone that did or will have surgery there ? This is very interesting. Wonder how much nerve transfer or epi stim cost.

    At least the transplant as curative therapy has a tentative target date, no restorative therapy at the moment can claim this. Any of you geniuses respond otherwise?

    Give me real proof. Have the patients piss on command, have them shit on command, and have them ejaculate on command. Give them prick tests to see if they can feel it. Highly disgusting, but absolutely necessary to prove that Asia A patients have actually recovered these functions. Easy to do.

    I hope that in a few months we will know more about what these people recovered.

    b) You have $$$ to lose. If you think $$$ is meaningless then send half of the money you own to me. I'll give you my address. Or you can donate it all to the Russian trial. They could always use the cash.

    c) Don't forget to eat blue m&m's after each meal
    b. I do have the funds. This is hypothetical
    c. I hate chocolate

If magically our neurological system is "fixed", the things I have just stated are completely uncoordinated. There is countless number of things going on in our bodies from head to toes. There also is a visual component to this if you are not aware of that.
    I really don't see that.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.
