    Thank you for sharing. I still can't decide on this one weather to get it or not.

    A few questions:
    1. Level of injury
    2. How many years post injury
    3. How long were you prohibited from weight-bearing on the wrist
    4. How long with the hospitalization

    I'm almost 30 years post injury and have figured out most ways to do things requiring some level of dexterity. I don't know if I'll be ready for that level of commitment given all of my other substantial problems that may require intervention in the future. Perhaps if I was young and within a few years of the injury.

    My level of injury is C6 complete.
    I am fourteen years post Sci.
    Was hospitalized for a week.
    After five weeks bandages from my wrist were removed and was allowed to move my wrist and fingers and start occupational therapy.
    So few weeks after surgery your dependence on others will increase.
    Thanks

    Awesome, I hope this is not limited to Pakistan.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Hi Peders, you have wasted so many of your years deciding weather to go for it or not. Going through tendon transfer was the best the thing i have done. its been 6 years since then. it changed my life in a lot of ways. i can now manage my ic , bowel program and all day to day grooming 100% independently !

    Ditto to that 28 yrs post c6/c7 have had 5 transfers done. Even though that involved a lot of time out of action it was so worth it

    I was offered that by a surgeo about two years post. I didn't take it because I was getting strong without it. I regret that and I'm not sure I would be able to get my Medicare advantage program to pay for it.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.
