(Minghui.org) I fractured two lumbar vertebrae in a work accident in 1995 that required a steel pin to be put into my lower back, causing unbearable pain and temporary paralysis in my legs.

My lower back was later injured again while I was watering the lawn, and caused the steel pin to break.

A famous orthopedic doctor checked my back and told me that the first surgery was not performed properly, and I needed to have another one to properly insert a steel pin to repair the bones.

Only two hospitals in Suzhou and Beijing could perform the surgery, but it was expensive, there would be a lot of pain, and they could not guarantee a successful operation.

The doctor further explained that I would eventually be disabled regardless of how the surgery went. I needed to be extremely careful not to strain my lower back. Bending my back or tying my shoes could potentially cause paralysis.

I felt depressed about my diagnosis. My child was too young and I had elderly parents to take care of.

Fortunately, I saw a doctor reading the main text of Falun Gong, Zhuan Falun, and it caught my attention. I later heard someone slandering Falun Gong practitioners, and this made me even more curious about the practice.

I talked to a practitioner and learned that Falun Gong could benefit one's health, so I decided to learn it.

Before I practiced Falun Gong, I could not even sit down for five minutes because of my lower back pain. However, while reading Zhuan Falun, I didn’t feel any pain in my lower back. My whole body felt light after I finished reading the book.

I had a dream a week later, and saw Master Li leading several heavenly beings in taking out the steel pin from my lower back. He then showed it to me. Since then, my lower back pain has disappeared and my health has greatly improved.

Master gave me back my life again. I now tell everyone I meet about Falun Gong.
