A mysterious problem in my back was identified by a chiropractor in Santa Rosa CA. The problem was associated with one of the discs in my vertebrae. In order to eliminate the problem, I had to have a procedure done. Although the end result of the procedure was a fully healthy back, I was scared to go through with it. I’m not the kind of person who takes the news of having to go through medical procedures well. I always think about the kinds of things that could go wrong during, even for something that is simple and non-invasive.
The chiropractor told me that it would be a standard procedure and I would have nothing to worry about, and my wife tried to do the same, but all I could think about was an accident. My wife thought I was being a little silly. She’s usually the first person to go to the doctor, and if she needs to have a medical procedure done, she’ll get it done right away, after having a second opinion. She always tells me that if you want to live a long time, you have to go to the doctor on a regular basis and pay attention to your body’s warning signs.
I had a choice between living with the problem in my back for the rest of my life, or getting the procedure done and never having to think about it again. At the request of my wife and the chiropractor, I put my fears behind me and went through with the procedure. It was pretty quick and nothing went wrong. After I was done healing from the procedure, my wife took me out to dinner to celebrate. Looking back on the whole experience now, it was pretty funny how I was acting like a big baby.
