I am in exactly the same type of situation that you are. I was in a car accident and my left thigh was injured by the support beam of my car. During surgery, Dr. Red Duke said that the sciatic nerve was not damaged, only badly contused. It is very frustrating to deal with a disability of this nature, especially with only being a 21 year old female. I would love to chat with you if you want...It would be great to talk with someone who is going through the same issues. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to write me. Thanks!
