In brief: Yes.
Yes absolutely. Transverse myelitis isn't by definition fatal - people with this may die of complications depending on their overall function.

Complete transverse myelitis is more severe than the more common transverse myelitis. Both these conditions can recur when part of neuromyelitis optica (NMO-Devic syndrome) or the more common multiple sclerosis.
