The whole concept made sense to me. Scientifically trained, with a 30+ year career in research and development, I was aware of the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. I had also followed the success stories of professional athletes being treated for injuries with HBOT. After undergoing extensive open back surgery that involved five vertebral discs, my recovery was unremarkable but still entailed a great deal of post-op pain and stiffness. I began twice daily HBOT treatments 18 days after surgery. The benefits that I experienced were extremely fast healing of my large surgical incision and the ability to significantly decrease the heavy doses of medication needed to control pain. Each succeeding day of treatment brought added relief from pain and stiffness. After a total of 8 days in treatment, my improvement was so substantial that I was functionally a different person. I would recommend anyone recovering from surgery should strongly consider HBOT as a route to accelerating recovery and the healing process.
