  • Bunn Bunn Muscles

    Ok. I really didn't want to post but I just need to ask. Although I am seeing my SCI specialist next week, I feel compelled to instead ask the CC. I am a complete almost 5 months post and I really believe I am an incomplete. As the months progressed I was able to feel more and more the insides of my stomach. This past week the deep sensation has went all the way down to my bottom muscles. Like ( and uh I hate to say this) but sometimes I feel that feeling like right before you go # 2 when your AB. (that knotty feelin in your stomach on the bottom) The feeling is coming from my bottom on the backside. Is this normal or is this recovery?

    I don't know for sure, but it sounds like recovery to me. Your injury is still so new. Wishing you many happy recoveries!

        What is you level of injury?
        Any feeling in your buttock, hips, leg?
        Your injury is still new and positive changes can still occur.

        Many people do feel pressure in the central area (insides) of the body but are still considered complete.
        However, the ASIA scale and terms of incomplete, complete and zone of partial preservation have specific definitions and specifically related to the motor and sensory components of the spinal cord level of the injury.
        There is an in-depth description of the ASIA scale and these terms on the site.

          Good news. That is often a first sign. Wise.

                  Spidergirl,

                  Thanks for asking your question, it answered some of mine too. I hope everything keeps coming back for you and everyone here.

                      Not wanting to be negative but I am the same level as you t5/t6 complete. I also can feel stomach and bunns and legs, but all at a deep level and no light sensation / pin prick. I am coming up to 1 year post (in 3 days) and the only things I consider to be progress are being able to move muscles that i couldn't (I can move my abs a little now) and light sensation which I now have to below my rib cage (after injury I could only feel just below my nipples).

                      As we all do I hope yours is more recovery, good luck.

                        Spider: Having had a similar experience, CWO seemed ...

                        to say it the most accurately, mind you SCI is a world where there's almost no such thing as 'accuracy'.
                        As far as the terminology of 'complete', v. 'incomplete', it is nearly an obsolete classification. You tend to see these terms pop-up with relation to SCI when it becomes convenient to do so trying to explain the un-explainable.
                        The real important concept here to remember is that you're experiencing changes, and are continuing to do so.

                          Tim & Racer,

                          I agree we all have different experiences. All our gentic make-up and genes are different so therefore our bodies all heal in its own way makin every SCI different. However, I am in the car on my way up to the mountains. My fam is puttin me on a sled while they ski and snowboard in Mammoth. Yipeeeeeee.

                          Its a bright sun shiny day and I will believe, at least for today, that I am recovering which I truly believe I am.

                            It is importing to document and monitor your sensory and motor levels. Weekly, keep a journal and post any new changes whether good or bad. Remember any new changes below your level of injury are telling you that signals are getting through that were not there before. Use this new sensation to really motivate you to keep up what you’re doing and focus on working harder mentally, physically, and nutritionally. Keep your body in the best possible state to heal.

                              Where can i find out about the Asia scale? Also, I experience burning sensations once in a while, bladder or uretha, related and take that medication that turns your urine orange color. But how is it that i sense it in my brain, but the bladder nerves are located below my injury level. I am T-10 para, complete.
                              Thanks: {Art}
