It took me by surprise. The painful spider bite on my upper arm was rapidly worsening and the wound was growing larger. My doctor told me that the Brown Recluse Spider bite I had was further being complicated because of my diabetes. Suffering daily with tenderness and pulsating pain, I was unable to do household chores and night time pain interrupted my sleep. Before resorting to a skin graft, my surgeon suggested I try HBOT. My family and I watched with our own eyes as each successive treatment aided my wound closing and finally healing. An even bigger surprise was the improvement I had with problems relating to a stroke I suffered in 2004. I can now walk much farther, keep my balance, speak more clearly. Thank you to Dr. Stephens and Hyperbaric Therapy of the Lowcountry - I am so grateful!
