I had fusion surgery, C7-T1, on February 27th. I was in a lot of pain over the last two years in my upper back and traveling down my right arm.
My treatment plan over the last two years was chiropractic care, therapy, and ibuprofen. My pain got so bad in early February this year that I was unable to work, sleep, or enjoy time with family.
I told Dr. Deal that I was ready for surgery. Dr. Deal and team were amazing to help get me scheduled sooner than later. My pain level leading up to and the morning of surgery was a 10+ in my back, arm, and fingers.
I awoke from surgery and had no pain in my fingers, arm, and back. Yesterday, was my 3 month follow-up appointment and when asked what my pain level is (0-10), I was thrilled to report “0” in all areas.
I wish I would have had the surgery earlier, yet am very grateful to Dr. Deal for walking me through the process and electing to have surgery on my terms.
I will recommend Dr. Deal and team at TCO to anyone. FANTASTIC experience!
