should be pretty quick...

After being trapped in an avalanche during a ski trip, a man is rescued and rushed to the hospital, where he receives immediate attention.

When the man wakes up, he exclaims to the doctor, "I can't feel my legs!" The doctor replies, "I know you can't, and you never will again. But take heart: your legs and your nervous system were entirely undamaged." What's going on?

Has he lost his hands (so that he can't feel his legs with them)?

***** SPOILER *****

His hands had to be amputated. Not only can he not feel his legs, he can't feel his waist, stomach, chest, head...

Quicker even then I thought... very nice work, Simon.

Hey thanks! It was the first thing that came into my head but - we think alike!
(Mind you, I do like Tim's idea too!!)
