Why Did I Wait So Long…

September 11th, 2018

20 year ago I injured my lower back rebuilding a old stone wall. I was bed ridden for 2 weeks then gradually I adjusted to walking over the next year. Chiropractors helped for short periods but after manual labor my lower back would grab me especially when I got up from sitting. I avoided the doctor for fear of making it worse hearing too many bad stories of surgeries in the 1990’s. Recently two of my church friends praised Dr. Haroun for having miracle hands that healed their backs. To my surprise Dr. Haroun also has a BSEE in electrical engineering like myself and understood my questions. In addition MRI imagery has now advanced to a point where spinal injury can readily be seen, there is no more guess work as in the past. My surgery was done as an out patient and took 2 hours where I walked to the car. I liked that it was not done in a germ filled hospital but a dedicated spine facility. It has been 2 months since the surgery and I still feel great. Why did I wait so long? Thank you Jesus and thank you Dr. Haroun.
