Is this where it goes? Hi everybody. I am a newbee here but certainly not one to SCI. C5C6 INCOMPLETE injury in 1971 after just turning 17. I'll do the math for you. That means I'm 64 and been living with SCI for 48 years. Right from the start I was determined not to bend to this injury and still don't think I have. Now retired, I had an exciting and successful career, got married twice and have two great kids (now grown). If there is a way my years of experience can be of use to anyone here, please let me know. However, the word incomplete after my injury level means it was an incomplete injury. Post injury I could (and can) feel and move some. Until 2008 I walked slowly with a long leg brace and cane. A wheelchair is more my style these days. Please let me know if I can help.
