December 2 2010 I was driving home from work and got hit by a big rig. MY LIFE CHANGED FOREVER IN THAT BRIEF SECOND. I have had three surgeries and the last surgery was nine hours long. I had bone fragments pushing up against my nerves and my spinal cord. My legs and hands have been numb since March, the last surgery was in June. I go to aqua-therapy three times a week . For the past 6 weeks my legs have been getting stiffer and stiffer my feet feel like they are swollen but they are not. I would like to know if the sensations in my legs and hands is part of nerves healing. Has anyone else experienced what I am experiencing.
