How was your experience with your patient coordinator?
Hilary contacted me within 15 minutes of me completing the survey. She was the most positive and supportive person I’d ever met. She took my information and gave me details about the process and made me feel like I had my very own representative through the whole thing.
How was your experience with your doctor?
Dr. Rupert is patient and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions before I even thought to ask. He is gentle and I felt at ease at all times!
What was your life like before surgery?
I was on the verge of dropping out of my senior year of college. My husband did most of the housework and kept us all running. I went to bed every night in misery.
What is your life like now, after surgery?
I am thriving in a Master’s program at the University of Alabama. I can enjoy time with my family, work, be a student, and have a social life. I can focus solely on my life and complete what I want to do each day. I can exercise again and spend time outside with my family and my dogs.
What would you say to someone who is contemplating the Omega Procedure?
Please explore your options. Don’t let your fears of having surgery keep you stuck at home with medications that are not helping. I have gotten 95% relief from daily migraines that kept me from enjoying life.
