I`m 21 years old male. 4 months ago I fell from more than 10 metres on my back and experienced SCI. Left side of L1 and L2 vertebrae ruptured thus injuring nerve roots of that side. Spinal decompression (laminectomy) was performed. Due to severe injury of L2 nerve root, surgeon removed it and told that it would never grow back again, though he believed, that other nerves would retake the regions, that used to be inervated by the fibers going through L2 root.
After the operation i could barely move my left leg, though i could move fingers. Since then a lot of things got better, i can walk now quite well, though my leg still feels numb, and most importantly, the front side of the hip (quadriceps femoris) and knee(patella is down) are totally numb and i can`t even feel it, so the problem is mainly n.femoralis dysfunction. Though n. saphenus works quite okey, m.sartorius also works... I wanted to ask if it`s really possible, that despite L2 neurectomy i could fully recover my quadriceps muscle function? Is it possible, that other nerve fibers retake the regions, that used to belong to L2 root? Sorry for my bad english
