How was your experience with your patient coordinator?
How was your experience with your doctor?
Dr. Rupert is awesome.
What was your life like before surgery?
I spent most days in bed with a migraine. If I went 2 days without a migraine it was a miracle. I couldn’t make plans because I always had to cancel at the last minute due to migraines. I wasn’t able to hold down a job in over 5 years.
What is your life like now, after surgery?
I have now gone back to work. I haven’t had any ER visits and I’m constantly going and doing something. Now that I’m not taking all the steroid injections and all the medications and not being laid up in the bed 24/7, I have actually lost weight. I’m now able to go on trips, work and go on school trips and participate in all my sons’ sports.
What would you say to someone who is contemplating the Omega Procedure?
It’s a life changing experience. I had almost given up on finding relief since I had tried everything. I felt like a human pin cushion. I now have my life back and it’s more enjoyable than I ever imagined.
