I would like to tell my experience with Dr. Gregory Flynn and his wonderful staff.
I initially hurt my back in 2000 on my 40th birthday. After being in excruciating pain for several years I had my first back surgery. I was in bed for probably 2 months with no after care or physical therapy. It was clear that this surgery had, if anything, made my back problems worse. A few years later I saw another Doctor who had told me the surgery he would do had a "90 per cent success rate". I was very apprehensive but decided to go ahead with the procedure. Once again I had no relief and was so frustrated that I had decided I would never have any other surgery again deciding it would be pointless.
I had a referral to see Dr. Flynn as the back pain was much worse, some days barely being able to move. I had the procedure to see if I would qualify for a Discectomy. I did but was extremely wary and honestly didn't expect to feel any relief.
I was not put fully under as I had to be able to follow Dr Flynn's directions. The nurses took such good care of me and when my husband drove me home I actually walked into the house. I slept for the rest of the day but was able to get up every day, gradually at first and as I felt stronger started short walks. After 3 weeks I was back at work.
Dr Flynn's wonderful staff set me up for Physical Therapy after my post op appointment with the Doctor.
The care and treatment I received from all his staff including Tammy, Mary, Nicole and his two great Physical Therapists Tory and Sherina was amazing. They all genuinely care how I have been doing and all want the same final goal, the surgery to have worked and for me to feel better.
I have not taken pain meds for 3 months, prior to the surgery I had been on painkillers for 16 years. I never thought I would ever NOT have to take pain pills so that is a testament in itself.
I cannot thank Dr Flynn and his fabulous staff for the wonderful gift I have been given, My life is now not dictated by how much pain I am in.
I want to say a huge THANK You for the Non Evasive surgery that has given me back my life.
