Linda R. - Retired- Natchitoches, LA
Okay, last Friday and Saturday, it was six years since I'd had my back surgery. I had to have two because I had a blood clot that formed from the first surgery. From that day on, it started with pain pills and I tried everything. I was in pain for six years and then I started coming to Dr. Currie. The first week I started, the first two days, I took a pain pill at night. Wednesday night I didn't take any, and I hadn't taken any since then. And I was taking four pain pills a day since my surgery in 2009, Vicodin.
And I tried everything. I went to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to a spine doctor. I went to Lafayette, Louisiana. I went to Shreveport, Louisiana to a spine institute and never saw the orthopedic surgeon. I saw his PA and he said, "Everything looks good." And I said, "Well, I guess I'm just crazy." I said, "And I know it ain't in my head, the pain that I'm having." So I just kept on. And then whenever I found Dr. Currie, well then that's been it, no pain pills. I hadn't taken any pain pills since I started coming here. The first two days, and that was it.
And I had trouble with my knee, it would always hurt, wake me up in a deep sleep. It would be hurting me so bad. And I asked Dr. Currie about that Be Active deal that they'd been advertising on TV. They said you put it on your knee, and it...something to the nerves, or the sciatic nerve and all that. He said, "Let's just hold off a little bit." And I'm glad I did, because after the first week of treatment, within the next week it started doing good. The next week...and then I don't have any problems no more.
