    I had been to many doctors for my back pain.
    The worst experience was when I went to one of the orthopaedic surgeons who was also my aunt's friend and he bluntly said that you have a back problem so you have to live with it. Don't do the things which hurt your back. I said but I can't even drive without hurting my back. He replied , don't drive then or buy an automatic.
    I was shocked!

    At least he didn't prescribe surgery.

    Apart from the guy's complete lack of interpersonal skills, this is certainly a good point, @sam908! Not being prescribed surgery qualifies to be on the "things to be grateful for" list.

    But still... it's pretty bad, isn't it? :jawdrop:
