Dr. Neil Melendez: It's very rare, but after many years with a bruised cord like yours that isn't severed, it can start to function again.
Cora: So, this mass is causing Hunter's pain?
Dr. Neil Melendez: Yes.
Hunter: If the cord is healthy, why aren't I feeling more than pain?
Dr. Neil Melendez: The mass is compressing the healthy cord, just letting the pain through. We still have to do some more advanced imaging to map the mass, but I am fairly confident that if we removed it, that could change. You may be able to walk again.
