 I JUST HAD MY DBS NEUROSTIMULATOR TURN-ON APPT & PROGRAMMING APPT THIS AM! OMG, MIRACULOUS RESULTS / OCD = NEAR CURED...


Hi, all! 


Long time no speak. It's been exactly one month since my 2nd stage of my DBS procedure surgery. (The implantation of the Medtronic chest device and connection of the leads via the wire up the neck). 


Today on March 3rd, 2023 I had my VERY first DBS device programming appt and device turn-on. My appt was at University Of Washington Medical Center with Dr's. Yi-Han Lin MD (Neurologist), Dr. Michael J. Schrift, DO (Psychiatrist), Dr. Vince Martinez, MD (Neurophysicist), and Loren DeMur (Medtronic Representative). This appointment was created to turn my neurostimulator ON and to also input the parameters given to my team by Dutch Mt. Sinai West NYC Neurosurgeon, Psychiatrist, and Neurologist named Dr. Martijn Figee (who is the world's expert on DBS for OCD). Well once the device was turned on – PURE magic happened! 


Here's what ensued:
