    Any return is a good sign. When was he injured? Does he have any sensation around his anus? Does he have any movement below his level of injury?

        It sounds like he has an ASIA B injury. It is too early to predict how much he will get back. Our approach is to be hopeful for more return, and to work hard with what comes back, but also to make plans for getting home with what he has now. Everything else he gets back is "gravy"!

            The sensation your brother is experiencing my be the beginning of the return of more sensation. It may also be a thing we call neuropathic pain. There are treatments for it.
