The first two weeks were literally hell. About the third week I started feeling better, and it didn't hurt as much to walk. On the fourth week started feeling much better, worked 2-hour week, then worked 4-hour week this week. I believe if I continue to heal as I am now, I will be in much better shape than I was before this surgery. 07-11-2014
Spouse – Before the surgery, he was in so much pain which affected him physically and emotionally. It affected the whole family, and I almost divorced him. Since the surgery, he has been a different person, much easier to live with. I am very grateful for this relief of pain for him. He now has hope, which makes him a totally different person.
Doing better since surgery. Can't do much physical work yet. Can injure myself pretty easy, but it only lasts no more than a day or two. Am happy with the outcome. My pain is a lot less than it was. Hopefully in a year I will be able to do more of the things I used to do. 01/16/2015
