Not that it really matters, but...
Dislocated spine at L5-S1 in 1994. Immediate paralysis of the legs. Docs were able to regain function, but it set up a reactive arthritis process which led to severe central canal stenosis, facet joint disease, and complete disc dessication from L5-S1 up to L2-L3. It's nicknamed "creeping paralysis." So far I have lost my right leg from the thigh down, with a incomplete foot drop. The left leg is starting to go numb the last few months. I also have damage to the nerves that control the bladder and bowels. Need I go on?
