All I have ever known is migraines and headaches – my parents recorded my first migraine at the age of 3 and they have been plaguing me ever since. As I got older they became more and more frequent, until I hit 26 when they became chronic – every day, all day, 7 days a week. I could barely work, hold down a job, get out of bed, hold a conversation or be actively involved in my daughter or husband’s life.
I turned to painkillers to cope day to day and as many migraine sufferers know, painkillers aren’t a long term solution, and they began to make the problem worse and worse. I finally contacted Dr Shevel directly after almost 3 decades of suffering, and was booked for the surgery a few weeks later. I knew I would do almost anything to help myself regain my life.
It took more than one surgery to move past the pain, but it has been a very worthwhile procedure for me. I look back now at that old life, and see it as a sad and dark time. I have been completely dedicated to my recovery and worked closely with Dr Shevel every step of the way if a headache has returned, or I have required additional treatment – he never gives up and has been so dedicated to my wellbeing.
I truly have my life back now, days are joyful because they are normal and pain free – just as they should be! There was a time in my life when I felt I would never be able to utter those words.
I am eternally grateful.
