  • Update and question about close friend

    I posted a few days ago about my friend with a T11 rupture. He previously had no sensation or movement other than spasms below the hip line, including S4-5 regions. I was visiting him yesterday and he was able to spontaneously move his left and right leg slightly on command, however still has no sensation to touch. He is now 6 weeks post injury and remains in rehab. So we obviously know now that this is not a complete injury. Or is it since he still has no anal sensation? Any experience or thoughts on this? Thanks!
