Mary H. Nichols, Ethelsville, AL

  • Back Surgery

“I feel do much better that I did before the surgery. When I lie down on the couch now it is because I am tired and want a little nap, not because I can no longer stand the pain. I do pace myself and try to judge what I should do and when I should stop. Life is so much better when severe pain is not present to affect every movement and every activity. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I talk to about back pain.”
