"June 30th I had my back surgery, Dr. Capehart and Dr. Rogers were my surgeons. They did a great job. I have not had any hips or legs pain since the surgery. I was in the Oklahoma Surgery Center. I had no pain after the surgery. I took less than 4 total pain pills, I did not need them. I was able to attend a Fourth of July Lunch at one of my brothers' on July 4th. I was able to attend church Sunday morning, July 5th.

I am having no trouble walking or living a normal life. I just completed my second week of therapy sessions 3 times each week. I am just amazed at my recovery and I thank both doctors and GOD for my recovery.

I went home from the hospital July 2. I had great care from both surgeons and the hospital nurses and staff.

I will see both Dr. Capehart and Dr. Rogers again August 30th.

Thank You So Much." – James
