Foot Surgery for Rheumatoid Arthritis Patient Testimonial
Well, first of all, let me start off by sayingthat I have been in pain for quite some time. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis,and living with it for about five or six years. My foot, my left foot, had gotten so bad thatI started to walk like a cripple. I'm a teacher, I work with students, I run up and down thehalls, and I just couldn't take it anymore. I got to the point where I couldn't even getup in the morning. So, I decided, I just made a decision, a conscious decision, to go andfind some help. I went to a pediologist, and she referred me to Colon. And I called Colon. He asked me to come in, did an xray, and told me everything that I neededto have done; and I was so nervous because
I did not want any type of surgery. But, honestlybecause of how everyone made me feel in the office; when I say that I mean, just the warmth,the friendliness, the relaxing energies there, I just felt good. I felt like I could actuallytrust this . I knew that I had to go through this in order to get where I neededto be. He was wonderful. He was absolutely wonderful. My hero. Going into the surgery,I didn't know anybody, I was kind of nervous. But when I saw Colon I felt like it'sgoing to be all right. Everything is gonna be fine. Since the surgery, it's been about,about a month. I've been in a boot. I've had to do foot toe exercises. And now I'm walkingfine. I'm wearing a gel pad, which will protect
the area during that time and will help thenerves reconnect in about 46 weeks. So, I should be back in shoes, and back in heels,at that time, and 100% recovery. And, I feel great, I mean it's just a little sensitivein that area. I healed so well that it doesn't even look like I had a cut. This office isjust the most friendliest office. I wish all of my s offices could be like this.Whoever set up the customer service or trained everyone, they did a fabulous job, becausethey're right on point. And, it's just the best experience I've ever had.
