Hi all, i sustained incomplete t3/4 injury due to a massive tumour on my spinal cord. Had thoracic laminectomy July 2018 to remove the ping ping size tumour. The severe compression caused brown sequard syndrome (loss of feeling/sensation on the right side of my body and loss of function/strength on the left side of my body). I have spent the last 12 months learning to walk again, and manage my ongoing pain and fatigue issues. Despite my issues, i know how lucky i am. Had the tumour not been found when it was, i would have ended up being a quad. I think that all of you who are kicking goals in life while being wheelchair-bound are all rockstars.
