In January, 2015 I had an operation, which was successful. After the operation I was stingy to spend time staying in bed. Even when I was still bleeding, I rather drove from Pretoria to Johannesburg for my study. I did not miss any class, but since then I have had for the last two years continuously a great low-back pain.
I have visited more than ten different Doctors. I did MRI; X-RAY……..It showed everything is ok with my back.. But why do I still have pain? Nobody could give me a real reason. .
I tried different exercises… I did everything I could…. But it got worse! The pain became stronger and unbearable, I could not drive anymore, and eventually stopped the studies. Two Doctors even suggested me that I need a low back surgery. I said ‘no’ with tears.
At the hard time I became depressed….
Accidentally on a party I met a German friend of mine, she highly suggested me to meet Dr Chiu: once she had strong pain on the shoulder and Dr Chiu cured her.
But my case lasted already for two years and 10 Dr.s…..
Anyway, I must give it a try!
Dr Chiu is a polite and quite person. After my explanation, he examined me carefully and told me, that my pain is by blood stucked for a long time, this was due to my driving + no recovering time + stress.
He asked me: why didn’t you wait for your recovery? What is so important to study than your own health?
And he recommended me to dedicate my patience to my body and his treatment, and I should wash away my stress and become positive, respect and listen to the body.
I did! With all my hope!
After 20 treatment sessions, now the pain has unbelievably disappeared!!!! What makes it better than it was before Christmas! How lucky and cherished I am!
During this journey, I walked every day thirty minutes (running hurted the back), and later I started to swim. Swimming helped a lot. Now I swim two times a day after my 30 minutes meet walk, early morning and late afternoon.
I am writing here, because I am soooooooo grateful!!!
I wish my sharing will help you, who has the similar problems!
