From the time they turned it on I could feel my brain picking up. I felt like I was getting oxygen again, and I’ve been feeling pretty tired. I’ve been feeling like my voice is really going, really, really soft, and now I can actually get some diaphragm underneath my voice. I’m so used to getting up in the morning and realizing that I feel a little worse than I did the day before, and the day after I started DPS I got up and felt better. And, it just threw me for a loop…And so, I’m feeling better, but I want to emphasize that this is not a cure.
Listen to Bruce interviewed in 2013 on Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) about his decision to get his NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System, the implant procedure, how the device works, daily use of the device and the benefits he has experienced.
