    The interview with Dr. Wise Young was really interesting and inspiring to watch. I would love to know more about these trials and if I could participate... my spinal cord injury at the level C4-C5 and happened in 1995 when I was 17
    C4/5 incomplete, 17 years since injury

    You are going to have to change your signature to say your injury is 'complete' and then fool them

    I think one person in Asia was actually able to do that. I'm sure unintentionally. It would be great to see how that person progressed as an incomplete who went through the entire process but unfortunately it's difficult to dig up too much information on it...

    I just watched this interview and I enjoyed seeing Dr. Young speak after only reading his words for a lot of years. I think it is exciting to hear about such results!

    One question I have is how long did the results last for the patients after they stopped the 6-6-6? He mentioned that good bowel and bladder control remained for many at the one year follow-up but what about walking ability?

    Also, could any of the patients go from sitting to standing on their own? What about taking a step up like on a curb?

    Thanks for posting this Lunasicc. And thank you Jim for your comments.

    Humm, makes me want to walk for 6 hours a day, to ditch the catheters. Would that really work?
    Glad to see Wise still going strong. Refreshing
