I have a spinal cord injury and was very inter ested in this coarse for personal reasons. The description of the symptoms for the bowel discomfort and the feedback pain that this cuases was the best written description I have seen. My injury is at C5 but is not a complete injury. I did not see the reference scores of severity of injury in here. I am very lucky as I classify as a 0. With the injury still causing a lot of the difficulty that you sdiescribe, I am able to work full time in a hospital setting. So any inclusion of information about incomplete spinal cord injuries could be encouraging fo r those going through this process.
