I’m off to see the wizard. I broke bones in my back about 13 years ago. Every few years, I went to a new Dr and they would say, sorry, there is nothing we can do for you. We can fuse the spine, but that will only move the pain up one level, and You would lose flexibility. it was not a good outcome. I tried everything under the sun from narcotics to exercises to acupuncture, chiropractic and non-traditional medicine. Massage relieved pain, but was short term. nothing ever really helped. Then, in March, I went to see Dr. Belding. For the 1st time in 13 years, I felt a glimmer. He came in like a ball of fire, full of energy and smiles and for the first time, he offered hope. he told me why this surgery would be different. He answered my questions in ways no doctor ever had. What about my surgery was different? Why some folks didn’t have good results, and I would. First time in 13 years I felt a glimmer of Hope.
If you are the praying type, and have a moment or two, say hey to the man upstairs and ask for a little blessing on the Doc and the results. Surgery is at 10:30 am. Thursday. Thy will be done.
