Considering your back/spine is one of the scariest places to have surgery, I can only say I wish I had it years earlier. So many horror stories and telling me I could be paralyzed, the pain I was feeling, I was at the point of 'I'm willing to do anything!' All for naught. I went from not being able to stand long enough to take a shower (we put a stool in shower so I could sit) to walking, running, exercising and finally enjoying life! I had my surgery Feb 2020, right before Covid shut everything down and I was up and walking THE NEXT DAY!!! Granted I was on morphine and a little woozy, I just couldn't wait to try. I was blown away that I could walk again!! Friends/family couldn't believe it. They were so happy for me. I was supposed to have physical therapy for a couple of months, 3 times a week, but it was very clear to me and the therapists that I didn't need it. I was able to do all the assigned exercises without stumble and walk out and continue at home with my own exercises, yoga, and zumba. I feel AMAZING & FANTASTIC. Dr. McNulty saved my life. I was not living before my surgery, just existing. Thank you Dr. McNulty!! His staff is amazing, too. Thank you to all of Team McNulty!!
