Before I met Dr. Sharma, I was suffering from the effects of an accident at work combined with degenerative disc disease. I had numerous spinal surgeries, yet I continued to find even the smallest movements to be painful. There seemed to be no comfortable position for me to sit or stand. Even a short walk to the next room exacerbated the pain to an intolerable level. I rarely slept in my bed because of the pain I experienced when I laid down. When I finally fell asleep it was only out of exhaustion, and then for not more than thirty minutes at a time because the pain would wake me up. I was taking large amounts of painkillers by mouth and they tended to upset my stomach in addition to having a detrimental effect on my mood and overall feeling of well-being.
Since I started using the morphine pump which Dr. Sharma installed, my quality of life has been much improved. Using the pump, I no longer take large amounts of oral painkillers, so I am much sharper mentally. By releasing the morphine directly into my spine, the pump affords me a significant amount of pain relief without the side effects that I experienced while I used other forms of pain management. I am able to sleep for longer periods of time in my own bed now, and my enjoyment of the "simple things" in life has returned.
I would recommend a consultation with Dr. Sharma to anyone who has been through the maze of treatment disappointments that seems to accompany severe back pain.
