How long were you experiencing pain prior to having the superion procedure?
For several years I had leg pain, it got so it felt like there were bands around my legs that made it difficult to stand or walk.
What other treatments did you have?
I tried medication but it made me unable to concentrate and comprehend while I was playing in my band and trying to read my fiddle music. I didn’t want to be on medication like that.
Prior to the procedure, what were you unable to do/experience in life?
I got to where I couldn’t walk very far, couldn’t be on my feet for my job which is as a nurse in a large pain clinic in Wisconsin, and I couldn’t stand while playing in my bluegrass band.
How was your experience the day of the procedure?
I went in and had the procedure done, in 30 minutes it was over! I went home that same day and was walking the very next day.
What was your recovery like?
I noticed pain relief the very next day. There was still some pain at the incision site and it took about a month for me to be back to my walks. I was able to be back at my job one week later and at six weeks I was able to take a six mile walk!
Tell us why you feel this procedure was successful for you.
I am back to doing the things I love to do, playing my music, working and taking care of my farm. I can haul grain, move band equipment, everything I did before!
