Patient Name: Hannah G.
Occupation: Veterinary Technician
Diagnosis: Chronic Migraines
Type of Procedure: Omega Procedure
Before I had this procedure done, I wasn’t able to do much of anything. My friends were all in college and going to parties and concerts while I stayed at home knowing that I wouldn’t be able to handle those kinds of things with my migraines. I’d also missed out on family events and vacations because of my headaches. When I had a really bad one, my family knew to just put me in a dark room and leave me alone. There were a lot of times where my family had to leave me at home because I had such a horrible migraine. I’d seen multiple doctors and pain specialists to try to find anything that helped but nothing did. There was a point where I was taking Hydrocodone on an almost daily basis because the pain was so bad. I honestly thought that there was nothing I could do for the constant pain I was in and that I’d have to deal with it for the rest of my life.
Since I had the Omega Procedure done over a year ago, my life has completely changed. I’ve enrolled back in college knowing that I won’t have to skip class or studying because of a headache. I’ve been able to go see my friend’s band play in smoky, loud bars and it doesn’t put me in bed the next day. I’m able to go out with my family without worrying that I’m going to miss out on spending time with them. I haven’t missed a day of work because of a headache since my recovery period. This procedure has changed my life in a way I didn’t think possible. I had suffered from crippling migraines for about 10 years and in the past year I’ve been relatively pain free. My migraines have gone from 3-4 a week with constant headache in between, to having no pain or huge gaps in time between pain. I don’t know what I would have done without getting the Omega Procedure.
