Can A Person Who Is Paralyzed From The Chest Down Still Have Sex Or Have Children
Sort of, and yes: Paraplegics have little or no sensation during sexual activity. Both men and women can have leg spasms, which make body positioning challenging.

With a paraplegic man, there are special ways to collect sperm, which doctors can then put into his wife to create a pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I get charlie horses under my ribs that are almost paralyzing any time i twist or am physical for a few years now. what do i do to prevent?
Find cause first: You do not give your age but from your description two likely causes would be electrolyte imbalances causing muscles having the most use at the time to spasm or you have a problem with your back around thoracic vertebra 12 causing a nerve to be pinched. When being physical drink the likes of Gator Aid with electrolytes and glucose if not diabetic. Get back x-rayed. See MD specializing in athletes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I had a tripple bypass op 2 years ago and still suffer with the scar down my chest how long will it take to fully disappear?
This scar: a problem: All scars go through a process of maturation that can take up to a year. Initially, surgical scars look good but may get more prominent, redder and itchier at 6-8 weeks, when their blood flow peaks. They will start to fade after that. If the scar is in the center of the sternum, it will tend to stay prominent for a long time. Scars never completely disappear. ...Read more

It : It sounds like you may have an irritated nerve accounting for your weakness. A nerve may be pinched in your neck due to a disc problem or bone spur. However, the pain in the front of your chest is not the typical pattern for a pinched nerve in the neck. If you have on-going chest pain or shortness of breath, you should be evaluated immediately for a cardiac problem. The neck pain and arm weakness make more sense anatomically. You should see a physician who can evaluate this and make recommendations for further testing (such as and mri) and further treatment (such as physical therapy). Until the cause of this is clarified and until the source of chest pain is identified, I am hesitant to recommend any home treatment. ...Read more
