I am a quadriplegic due to spinal meningitis and I now suffer from transverse myletis. If I were to receive a stem cell transplant, would my return be greater because my spinal cord is not severed than that of a quadriplegic with a severed spinal cord?

I only know one other quadriplegic as a result of spinal meningitis, do you come across many quads as a result of this disease or do you find that paralysis from spinal meningitis rare?
