Let me start with I'm a diabetic. I developedneuropathy, which basically you lose all sensationthe feet, but it's over a period of time.It was very painful. I would have sensationsmy feet like I was standing on fire, walkingon glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldn't sleep at night. Then I met Bullard, because he's just a great physician. I wouldn't think twice, I'd recommendhim to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I can't say enough about Bullard. He'sjust a great physician and I don't know if there's anything he couldn't do hecould probably move mountains if he wanted to!Glen, probably one of the biggest questions
people are asking you is what'd we do, what'shappened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvementyour pain and the tinglingand the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here,which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose aroundit. What we did is we wentand loosened the noose, and that allows that nerve to beginto function and work like it's supposed to.Now, the sensation is coming back, it's something that's going to take time butI can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Bullard. There's no other physician
that I would recommend.Glen,the next couple weeks, what we're going to do is make sure that the swellingis improving, hopefully begin to transition you out of your compression socks, becauseI know it's kind of hot right now, and then look at making sure that your shoe gear andthings like that are where they're supposed to be, fitting you well, protecting your feetand stuff. Ok? Very good. Thank you, I appreciate it, havea good weekend! You do the same. Alright, see ya.
Okay so what's your B12 level now Judy? It'sup to 1300 and the normal is 1000. Nice! And so, I think that this neuropathy was frombeing diabetic as well as being very low on Vitamin B12 for an extended length of time.Okay, soconjunction with your neuropathy care and the Vitamin B12, you're back on track?Yes! But I don't think either one of them, I mean especially, I don't think the VitaminB12 would have done it without this. I don't think Vitamins could have done it either,now Vitamins don't regrow nerves. It actually keeps it from having more damage. Exactly.But I don't know that I would have regrown anything. Exactly. So I'm really pleased.I think that I've had wonderful care here.
Well you've been a pleasure, it's been ourpleasure, absolutely; thank you for making the trip too. You're welcome. Happy to seeyou making good decisions for yourself. Oh I had to, the next place was the bed. Right?And I didn't want to have that happen, who wants to take care of somebody that can'tmove? I've taken care of many of those patients because I'm a nurse. Oh that's the last placeyou want to be. That is the very last place. That is the very last place; you have hadfirst hand experience about what would happen. Oh yes. Well I think you've added some longevityonto your life. And some quality. And quality! That means so much. It does! I used to loveto dance, and now maybe someday, I don't know
if I'll dance but I can at least walk. Andyou can wiggle! You can move!.
