    I've kinda excepted my fate too, just thought there might be something that would help a little bit. I'm back to FES bike riding every other day after having a major operation 7 weeks ago. I'm just gonna do the most I can do the rest of my life and take nothing for granted. I'm kinda not crazy about the idea of another operation with the risks of complications anyhow at this point in my life.

    Tragic. I so thought I would see something at 12yrs old.

    You're probably thinking of the MyoRegulator thread that's currently in clinical trials with the PathMaker company and being FDA "fast tracked".

    Implantable pain stimulators are already on the market. I doubt implanting pain stimulators into paralyzed people for gaining movement will get much traction with neurosurgeons until they see the proper validation for doing so. It's only a hunch, but I think they'll be wanting an FDA approved device specifically designed for locomotion to implant before the idea gains much speed and becomes readily available at the clinics.

    I have accepted my fate as well. no cure in my lifetime. I am T-12, 57 years old, and been in this chair 37 years. I will most likely die from a UTI mega bug that cant be treated. I plan to enjoy what life I have until that day comes. Two more "cure in 5 year" cycle's will put me at 67. There may be hope for the 20-somthing generation that are recently injured.

    I have to laugh at 'the masses.' We're so few ... remember how we all thought returning soldiers would speed up research and treatments? Ha!

    I've been hurt 2 1/2 years. The resistance to progress from able bodied people borders on insanity. Even the resistive behavior of those that spend a tremendous amount of personal resource helping the injured is fascinating (or at least to me). I've laughed inside at some doctor here commenting about the stress of "publishing" for researchers like Jerry Silver. That is truly funny to me. I've been in horrible pain every minute since I hit the ground 2 1/2 years ago. The stress of a publishing deadline is just silly to me now. I can only imagine the total misery that sweet lynnifer has gone through all these years. My heart goes out to you lynnifer. Able bodied people have no clue how much misery we go through. Worse yet are the able bodied family member of injured that become total jackasses because they feel like they have paid their dues. They are a piece of shit and should just shut the hell up. Until someone has SCI STFU. Give me access to all the information and all of the technology. I am a citizen and have contributed to financing all of this research. Let me use whatever the hell I want however I want. If I want to use Jerry Silvers drugs let me work with him on the best dosage and method. If I want to try Invivos new delivery system let me. If I want to try Dr. Young's therapy let me. If I want to commit suicide and I want my family there let me do it with dignity and the help of a doctor. I will even pay for these options. You people have all gone insane with your imposed morality on others.

    Very well said, I agree with you. Sorry this thread did turn a little bit morbid, but aging with this injury is not pretty let me tell you all. When you get over 50 after being paralyzed a long time if it's not one thing it's another thing. You just keep fighting the constant battles to try to survive.
