Don's Testimonial - Failed Back Surgery Made His Pain Unbearable Until Our Treatment Saved Him

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Tue, Oct 13, 2015 @ 05:23 PM

Illinois Back Institute patient Don had been suffering with back pain for the past 20 to 30 years. Over time the pain had gotten progressively worse. Don went to his doctor, who suggested he get back surgery right away. He also went to a surgeon for another opinion, who agreed that surgery was the way to go. So, Don listened to his doctors and went ahead with the surgery.

Before the surgery, he was told that he was going to have a fusion done on one segment of his spine. However, when he woke up after the procedure, the surgeon told him that they acutally did the fusion on 3 segments!

After the surgery was performed, Don felt terrible. The pain was even worse than before, and he thought he was never going to be able to function normally again. He couldn't work and his social life went completely downhill. Don turned to taking pain medicine to cope. He would come home from work in so much pain that he would immediately take pain pills just to be able to make it a little longer. The pain was out of control, so Don went back to his doctor to see what else could be done for it. It was now a year and a half later, and Don was told that he had a failed back surgery and that he should go under the knife again!

"I went back to my back surgeon. He said another surgery. And I was like, why another one when I haven't even gotten better from this one?" - Don

Don saw nothing good coming out of having another surgery, plus he didn't want to go through that pain again. His friend had heard about the Illinois Back Institute and suggested Don check us out instead. So, rather than go under the knife again he scheduled a Free Consultation and started treatment. Right away Don felt a change in his spine. After 3 months of treatment, Don was pain free and feels wonderful! Before, his friends and family were very worried about him, but now they see that he is happy again and living life to the fullest. Don can now do things that he could not do before. He is off of the pain medicine and enjoying his life more than he ever has.

"I can't even put it into words. It's like my life was given back to me. It's like when you have a life and it's taken away and then it comes back to you. It's wonderful! I wish I would of come here before I had surgery!" - Don
