Patient 19: Osteoarthritis and Significant Low Back Pain

Solution: Epidurals

Dr. Batlan,

I just wanted to send a short note to say “THANK-YOU.”  I have had a bad back since 1998.  Even at night when I was asleep, the pain would wake me up when I turned over in bed.  Unfortunately for me, doctors at the time said I had two choices: surgery or “live with the pain.”  Of course, they also told me that surgery had a 5% to 10% chance of leaving me paralyzed from the waist down.  I decided to live with the pain.  After almost 9 years the pain was getting worse and we had heard about the possible back-pain relief methods that were now available.

We are so grateful we not only decided to check out information on the “new medicine” but were lucky enough to pick you and your staff as the place to find out about it.

The Monday I came to see you before the first Wednesday shot, my pain level was an 8 or 9, (I was limping even walking in to the office).  After the first injection my pain level was down to about a 2 rating. Since I have completed all the treatments, I have been pain free for almost two weeks.  I realize it may not last the rest of my life, but I have not been pain free in over 9 years.

I cannot thank you enough for all you have done.  It is great to be able to enjoy life again.
