LisakayMD your injury sounds alot like mine. i can walk with braces and crutches however it is more for excerise than functional. i too had a spinal stroke at the T6 level. i drive myself and take care of myself you definately need to start doing more on your own! where did you do rehab? any chance on maybe doing another inpatient stint to get your skills better? i have did 3 stints inpatient for about 2-3 weeks at a time as i was getting more function even 2 years after injury. i have been out of therapy for about 5 years now as insurance won't pay for it anymore.
