I had peripheral nerve decompression surgery done by Dr. Ziv Peled in San Francisco. I am headache free. I had one surgery done in October of last year and was probably 80% headache free. I had a second surgery done in February of this year. I am now headache free. I suffered for so many years with migraines and the medications I had to take in order to function at any level. I feel so good and so grateful. My neurologist, who had become a friend over the years, would not even read the literature that I printed out for him regarding the procedure. My daughter-in-law, who is a pharmacist, was the only one willing to thoroughly research the procedure. It is because of her willingness to investigate something new and her encouragement, as well as my confidence in Dr. Peled, that I had the surgery. There are no words to express my gratitude for the new lease on life that I have.
It is so sad that people whose lives could be helped by this procedure are discouraged by their own physicians. I think of this quote. "Contempt prior to investigation leaves a man in everlasting ignorance". I am exercising, losing weight, planning events......doing all the normal things that one does without a headache or drugs or the fear of getting a headache. Thank you again for everything!!
