As a 28 year old male with degenerative stenosis of the spine and 5 discs ruptured while playing on the Falcon Football Team at The US Air Force Academy and Preparatory Academy, Title L and Title M of this bill will, hopefully, positively effect my ability to receive the most advanced and effective disc replacement technology available in the world. We are far behind other esteemed developed ally nations that have been using this new, less invasive and more advanced tech, device for years. This, coming from the opinion of the Neurosurgeon to perform my initial spinal procedure, a laminectomy, considered safe but very rare for someone of my age (typical patients are around 55 and over) and as a result the typical anesthetics used for it were of little use when I, as a 230 pound 25 year old and prescribed OxyContin narcotics for 12 months to manage daily pain at the time, woke and began seizing at which point an accidental incision of my spinal membrane caused spinal fluid to flow from my spinal cavity and brain. Fortunately, and after 3 weeks off work, of which 1 week was not guaranteed at the time due to their sick-leave and vacation policy (yes, I had to use all my vacation for the year and receive 1 extra week directly from the CEO. And yes, this inspired him to change their policy to a more Euro-mentality of sick days and holidays). Without an alternative to the current disc replacement procedures available via The FDA within the US, I will have to live the rest of my life undergoing surgeries, such as described, to put off this archaic disc replacement procedure of which is sadly our only option as US Citizens. Let our allegiance to the human race and proper ethics overpower our political posturing.
