Hi,

Nerve damage especially in the spine very rarely recover. However, I have seen stranger things happen in my career of nearly quarter of a century. So if you feel that there is some improvement with regard to movements of a paralyzed limb, it's better to see your doctor for another assessment and if needed to start physical therapy and nerve stimulation to maximize your recovery chances and to try an get you on your two feet.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
