Hometown: Sudan, TX
Occupation: Plant Operations Manager
Diagnosis: Severe Headaches and Neck Pain due to nerve involvement from Ankylosing Spondylitis
Procedure Type: The Omega Procedure
Procedure Date: January 13, 2012
Pre Surgery Condition: I was in constant pain, lost interest in everything I enjoyed. I sold our travel trailer, my Harley, stopped socializing, driving was unbearable. I was getting by on 3 or 4 hours of sleep every night. I was taking pain medicine every day and night just to get through the workday. Serious depression had taken over my life.
Post Surgery Condition: I have my life back. The outcome for me is 100% relief. I have to admit coming into this procedure I had very little faith in getting the results, my less complete relief from my headaches. When you are as depressed as I was and been through all the procedures and spent all the money I had with little or no favorable results, it’s pretty hard to take this step. But thank God I did. My wife and I have just purchased a new R.V. since driving is no longer an issue. I have returned to a life of no prescription pain killers and antidepressants. I still have a life long battle to fight with A.S.( Anklyosing Spondylitis) but I now have a life that’s worth fighting for.
