Life now: “Recovery was a pain in the back,” Lee said laughingly. He had to wear a brace for a while, and sitting was definitely uncomfortable at first. Staying cognizant of the possibility of chemical dependence, Lee only took strong pain medications for the first five days. After that he managed with ibuprofen and rest.

Lee summed up his journey simply, “the pain before was life altering for me, but now I have zero issues.”
