My cousin had gone through a severe accident which lead him to a c6 spinal cord injury. He had been operated and the operation was successful. How much time would it take for him to recover? Will he be able to walk completely on his own feet? What are the chances?

He can definitely do physiotherapy until he becomes functionally independent. Instead of soft cervical collar, we suggest patients to wear hard collar.
