    Is there anyway that I can be evaluated for a research project? I’m in Fort Lauderdale now. Over a year ago I was left paralyzed ( boot feet) and bowel & bladder incontinence after a spinal surgery in Buffalo,NY. I have had PT from the surgery till this Semester. I’m willing to try anything,- nerve stimulation,stem cells- anything that might help.
