Mary M. Ph.D.
On 2011, shortly, after my husband passed away, I was diagnosed with severe arthritis on my right ankle. Three Doctors, two of them specialized in ankle surgery told me I need to replace my ankle immediately. By that time, I was spending five years in hospital taking care of dying husband, I was not ready to go back to the hospital again.
Saying that, I called my doctor, he kindly told me to give myself a two weeks’ time to do acupuncture, if it did not work I always can go for the surgery. I went in his office in a wheel chair, and after a few treatments, I was back to walking and swimming, my two favorite exercises. Since then I am doing very well with my ankle.
Unfortunately, my body is susceptive to arthritis, in and recent X-ray, I found out that I have severe problem with my left knee and left hip. Of course, the first suggestion from my doctors was the hip and later on knee replacement.
Here I am, back to my doctor again, after 3 years, this time with a walker. After two treatments, on June 2nd and 3rd, I am walking without walker today, and I am going to walk on June 3rd, for my third treatment to his office WITHOUT WALKER.
I JUST WANT SAY THANK YOU, I WISH THERE WAS MORE POWERFUL WORDS TO EXPRESS MY FEELING, AND MY APPRECITION FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME. YOU GAVE MY LIFE BACK TO ME.
