    Then do it! Let us know of your progress!

    This is a very complicated question. While waiting and waiting, believe it or not, you are allowing parts of your body to also degenerate that you are not even aware of. This is both physical and neurological. This waiting is retraining and rebuilding all of the coordination of the physical and neurological. A baby from time of birth is doing/learning all of these kind of things. A baby takes an awfully long time to become an adult. 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 saw a documentary on TV where two men were able to transfer in time by using a phone booth. We all better hurry though because phone booths will be extinct with all of these cell phone thingies coming out!

    What trial in Russia is that?

    Also, there are other places to go for full-body exercise than project walk. Right in Toronto (near where you're from correct?), a researcher at Brock University named David Ditor runs a gym for people with SCIs that community members can use for FREE. I don't know how much activity-based stuff they do but I know he has at least treadmill training as well as a full line of FES equipment.

    Hi tomsonite, the Russian one is coordinated by Jan Eric Ahlfors, who I believe is from Canada. There's a thread on the Cure section front page, posted by Grammy.

    There is nothing right now I would try, maybe the epidural stimulation. Even if a cure arrives tomorrow, I believe I still have some significant hurdles to get over.

    1) its been over 35 yrs since my accident. How chronic is too chronic for a cure
    2) I have 3 mangled vertebra (T11,T12, L1) fuzed together. I am sure I will need some kind of orthopedic surgery to correct alignment and decompress the spinal cord even before any type of cure surgery.
    3) On the left side of my body, I have feeling down to about the T10 level, while on my right side, I have feeling down to the L1 level. I have no idea how a cure will work, if ever, in the T12-L1 transition area
    4) Right now, I really have no issues with my bowel or bladder control. I get the occasional UTI and that?s about it. My worry, is any failed cure surgery attempt would screw up current bowel and bladder state.

    Is there a way to get epidural stimulation in another country? Cuz I'd pretty much sell my house if there was a way. But yes, pretty much what you said is what I'd do

    a) One of them told a friend, who told a friend, who told a friend...What a SCI patient says he has recovered means nothing! I've heard people say they've got recovery from foot rubs! and that Panama center.

    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
