His heart began racing, he couldn’t sleep, his energy level was low, and he suffered from severe shortness of breath. Life as he knew it began to stop. “As the months went by, I couldn’t even golf or bowl any more  - two hobbies that I avidly have done for years,” said the Tinley Park resident. “My health declined so poorly that I was unable to work 6 months prior to having my heart ablation procedure at Silver Cross Hospital. But now, I’m thrilled to report that I am a new man thanks to the fantastic care I received from Dr. Shroff and the staff at Silver Cross.

During this time, she had multiple surgeries to relieve the excruciating pain. She was doing well until last September when she started experiencing foot pain. By December, she was unable to walk. It was then determined that LaFollette was suffering from a failed Lumbar fusion surgery  and SI (Sacroiliac) Joint Dysfunction which was causing pressure on her sciatic nerve leading to severe left leg pain, weakness and gait instability.  After enduring yet another surgery, LaFollette was stressed and depressed because she was not able to work for eight months and was faced with the overwhelming task of completing a long physical therapy rehabilitation program.
