Full circle: a return to Christian Science

Reliance on prayer precludes the need for recommended surgery.

Late On A Friday Afternoon, the back pain I had been experiencing grew worse, and began spreading down my right leg. My doctor agreed to see me, and my husband drove me to her office.

In a moment's short examination, the doctor diagnosed my condition as sciatica and gave me a shot of cortisone directly to the affected area. The excruciating pain from the injection nearly sent me through the ceiling. The doctor told me that one can't get through life without experiencing lower back pain and sciatica, and prescribed a painkiller. She added that if the pain did not subside in a few days, I should see a physical therapist.
