    Hi EJ,
    Welcome to the Care Cure Community forum. Many of us say we are glad you found us, but sorry that your accident and injury made it necessary.

    What prognosis have your doctors given you?

    All the best,

        This is a good example where a complete profile is so necessary. What country/location are you in? I assume you meant to write your injury was 6 months AGO, not 6 months from NOW (which would be May 9, 2017). I am assuming English is not your first language.

        You said you had a spinal fracture, but did you also damage your spinal cord? This is not always the case. What was your degree of paralysis when you were first injured? Do you know your AIS category (A, B, C, D, or E)? Have you had any improvement since that time in either/both sensation or movement below your level of injury? What has your physician told you?

          Ej,

          I don't know if you can walk but you can run!

          You can run after your dreams, ambitions and goals in life!

          So, put on your running shoes and shorts and start your marathon of life!
