How was your experience with your patient coordinator?
Hilary was such an amazing gift through the whole entire process. She was a wonderful liaison between the insurance company and the surgeon and between the surgical staff and me. Hilary was very detail oriented and was also great at allaying any fears that I had.
How was your experience with your doctor?
Dr. Shuyato was great through the whole process. He explained everything well and helped me through some hiccups during recovery. He was great.
What was your life like before surgery?
Daily pain that fluctuated throughout the day from a 2-9. I was unable to attend any loud functions and had to resort to a lot of medication and bed rest for relief.
What is your life like now, after surgery?
My quality of life has improved in so many ways. I no longer am on 5 daily medications that I was taking before the procedure and I am happy to say that my daily pain level ranges anywhere from a 0-3 with only a few days of breakthrough migraine pain. I am [now] able to smile and to see better.
