Hi all, here is an update about my health since I underwent the procedure in July 2016.
There is a marked improvement in that I dont feel like there is a loose part when I bend forwards and neither do I feel as breathless as I used to in between. I think this also has to do with the diet I follow and the loss of a little weight has helped me.
While there is mild discomfort when I turn in my sleep and I do get breathless while doing physical work it is less alarming as it used to be earlier.
Hope you find this encouraging and helpful.
