<p>A mum has shocked doctors by learning to walk again after a&nbsp;4x4 fence pole severed her leg in a horror car smash.<br></p><p>Paige Woodhouse's life changed forever when she was involved in a car crash that resulted in a 4x4 fence pole going through her left leg - just a week before her 23rd birthday.</p><p>The mother-of-one was told by doctors at the time that her leg might have to be amputated, that she would be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life and that she would "never be able to walk again."</p><p>But, five years later - after a total of seven months in hospital and five operations - Paige regularly uses the gym and has retrained her leg to walk again. </p><p>Paige, 28, hopes her story will encourage others to "always pick yourself back up, no matter what" and admits her eight-year-old son was her "inspiration during the dark times". </p><p>On 29 March 2017, the single mother from Gloucestershire was driving to her three-year-old son's nursery when she was told later on she either "fell asleep" or "passed out" at the wheel.</p><p>Paige - who crashed at Junction 13 on the M5 in Stroud - said: "I don't remember what caused the accident - I was on lots of medication for a separate medical problem - but it all happened in a flash.<br></p><p>After a year of recovery, Paige was able to come off antibiotics and her crutches in April 2018 - and a few months later she started going to the gym to build her leg up again.</p><p>Despite being told she would be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life, Paige exceeded the doctor's expectations in her rehabilitation progress - and her recovery has been used as a case study for doctors in training.</p><p>She said: "I just started building up muscle again - my calf muscle was so skinny at first!</p><p>"It was so challenging but I couldn't give up, it just was not an option for me.<br></p><p>"I want to help and show people that life can be hard, and bad things can get thrown at us, but you have to pick yourself up and keep going".</p><p>Paige's next goal is to climb Snowdonia for charity, in what she explains is a "mission to show people you can achieve anything that you set your mind to".<br></p>
