Thank you for posting the query.
It is unfortunate that your brother had a spinal cord injury
leading to disability
The extent and time for recovery depend on the severity of injury as well as how early after the injury the surgery was performed.
In cases of mild to moderate spinal cord damage, complete recovery may occur. However, if severe injury had occurred, recovery may not be complete.
Similarly, if operation was performed within 24 hours of injury, there are good chances of recovery.
Most important to ensure good recovery is regular physiotherapy
treatment may offer much promise in future for patients with spinal cord injury.
