Patient Comments (1)
in Bronson, MI |
UPDATE: After a month when all the drugs wore off the pain started to gradually come back, went through therapy, and tried a couple different pills he put me on with no success. I am now back where it was before the operation, sometime it's better to leave things the way they are, because surgery doesn't always take care of the problem.
