Post Concussion Syndrome Treatment with HBOT Mother-to-Mother Letter

Post Concussion Syndrome Treated Two Years later with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
A Mother-to-Mother Letter

By Eileen Geller RN

June 2012


Hi, I'm Eileen Geller, a Seattle-RN and mom of Nate, who is now 13 years old. I understand you have some questions about the potential use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for your nephews, one of whom has lost his eyesight.  I am most happy to speak to you or to your sister or one of your other family members about Nate's experience.  Perhaps it might also be helpful for me to provide a brief written overview of Nate's experience so you can pass this on in advance of a phone call.  At 10 years old Nate received a brain injury playing lacrosse. He had some pretty severe after-effects, including physical debility, pain, balance, hearing, and cognitive function loss.  The most severe problem involved vision.  Nate's entire peripheral vision was knocked out by the injury—he had only an inch in front if each eye with mostly clear sight, the rest of his vision was totally opaque and spinning constantly.  They determined the hit had knocked out his brain's ability to determine visual vergence, among other problems.  For a year and a half we went to a slew of doctors, neurologists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other specialists.  Eventually we went to a physician my ophthalmologist neighbor and friend called "the god of eye doctors."  This fellow actually told Nate to his face that his vision would "never ever improve."
