Pam shares her mother’s experience who underwent the MILD procedure to treat her Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
My mom is 87 and was getting epidurals every 3 months. She was in agonizing pain most of the time and lived in expectancy of a better day. When learning of the MILD procedure, its simplicity and outcomes, she had no hesitation to try this procedure, possibly as a last resort. We scheduled the appointment with anticipation and were told it takes an hour. From the first step off the bed, her walk was straighter, quicker, more confident and without crippling pain. The MILD procedure has restored hope and enjoyment to a much limited and unpleasant life experience. She can breathe again, go out with no fear, walk around a store and face a new day without being a “person in pain”. Anyone who lives this way should (or may I say MUST) be evaluated for this procedure. Why suffer that way if it is simply unnecessary!
