Elderly man wins back his independence
WITH A SPINE SURGERY

T S Rajagopal (67)
“I had extreme pain in my back and weakness in my legs. I was unable to walk, do my regular activities. My daughter insisted upon seeing a specialist to find out what was the real problem. First when the doctors said I had to undergo surgery I was not sure, but he explained to us in detail my problem and said if I don’t treat it now, the pain will worsen and I may suffer more. My daughter and son in law were convinced and wanted to be pain free, and with their assurance I underwent surgery. Today, I would like to tell many others like me who are suffering from spinal problem not to delay and take necessary step to treat it at the right time”

After this surgery, I feel I have been gifted a new life and I look forward to resuming my normal life.”

"Initially I was apprehensive about surgery at my age. But when it came to a point when I couldn’t write my name, I started weighing the pros and cons. After much discussion with the doctors I made an informed decision to proceed with surgery. I am able to resume walks with my friends and go out with my family. Little things that you usually take for granted."

"I had not smoked a beedi for more than two weeks and was craving for a puff. So as I woke up after the surgery, the first thing I asked for was a packet of smokes. The doctors were so torn between trying to reprimand me for it or be happy that I was back to being normal"
