I believe that if you go back and read through the previous posts you won't have such a pessimistic opinion. To my recollection there are a number of folks who have had successful outcomes. I actually believe that they are in the majority - remember, people who get well tend to get on with their lives.....they stop visiting and posting - which is one of the reasons I wanted to post my experience and continue to leave follow-ups. There are bunches of people who have posted on and then gone about their lives not to be heard of again.Do you imagine that they ALL had bad outcomes? Muschawecks' walls have the pictures of maybe 30 professional athletes [mostly soccer/football to you Brits]in frames with Thanks from them. Would you think they would thank her for bad outcomes. I don't think so.
I am NOT an optimistic person in general. But I think if you are lucky and get the right surgeon [yes luck plays a part for sure, as does youth,genetics,general health,etc.]you stand a good chance of having a normal life. Maybe you won't continue athletics at your previous level [then again lots do] but maybe you can lead a normal life without pain ruling it.Let's hope so!!!
Based on my reading of all these pages and lots of research - I went to Muschaweck. Is it a success? Don't know yet, but I will post back with my results good or bad.
