5 years ago I was sent to Dr. Taghva by my pain management specialist. He had very thorough tests done. He told me that it was his opinion that I had RSD aka CRPS. After much discussion with my pain specialist, I had a spinal cord stimulator implanted. I loved the relief it gave me.
A few years later, I was back in Dr. Taghva’s office with excruciating pain that had spread. I was in so much pain that all I wanted was to not feel pain. Yes, I was ready to end my pain any way possible. Before doing anything drastic, I sought out help from Dr. Taghva, not really believing anything could help. I was so wrong.
Dr. Taghva helped me with some disc degeneration. Then, he had the patience with me to tackle my CRPS. He replaced the non-working SCS with one of the newer ones that worked differently. Very quickly, I was amazed to find that my pain in the part of my body was up to 75 percent relieved.
Three months later, he implanted a second SCS to conquer the other pain I was still enduring. Thank you, Dr. Taghva, for giving me a big part of my life back. I actually smile again. The pain I have now is much more tolerable. I can live again, enjoying my children more, cleaning again, just getting out of bed, which I spent a good deal of time in.
