VinniCashI know all about it..... I shattered my T5 Vertebrae + spinal cord contusion back in April, I had surgery, I have about 12 screws+ some rods from t3 to t7.......the first 2 months are gonna suck and will be painful.....but slowly it will get better. Take it day by day, and stay positive the whole way.
You got this !!!
Holy F Dude. Your xgames performance just got way more cred.
I remember you talking about the initial injury and how you skied then walked away before getting help and realizing how serious it was. Wild. When I broke my back I couldn't feel my legs at first.
I broke t4/5 and got fused t2-8 a few years ago and I'm doing pretty well myself. Brook's injury is much different because the lumbar moves so much. The thoracic is the stiffest part of our back. Bobby Brown is another guy who had a lumbar injury and came back relatively fast.
To the guy studying to be a back doctor: good luck. I'm not sure what you plan to do exactly but I know I owe my functionability these days all to Dr Daubs in SLC at the U of U (he's now in Vegas at the University of Nevada). His team put me back together.
