(Minghui.org) My husband was a mine worker who was diagnosed with a left leg femur fracture in September 1991 after a work accident.

For a quick cure, he took the doctor's advise and used an automatic compression instrument invented by Huaxi Medical University, which was claimed to heal the bone fracture within three months. Yet, after one year, he still could not walk and his leg turned purple.

An x-ray showed that his bones were separated by the instrument and could not touch each other, thus preventing the healing process. We found out that the so-called automatic compression instrument was actually a failed research product. But the hospital and school still recommended the product to the patient for economic reasons.

Surgery was needed, but the doctor refused to accept responsibility. Finally the hospital allowed a surgery. However, the screws that connected the steel plate to the fractured bones were not tightened and the plate broke after a few days. The hospital had to perform the surgery four times and complicated the situation further. My husband developed inflammation of the bone marrow, which the hospital could not cure.

My patience had reached its end and I appealed to the provincial medical bureau in May 1996 because of the doctor's malpractice. Six years had passed and my husband's leg got worse. His mother has passed away, our son had health problems and I experienced different ailments, including frequent headaches.

Falun Dafa Brought Relief

In my darkest hour, my sister-in-law sent my husband the book Falun Gong, the introduction book of Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong, a cultivation practice.For my husband the exercises were difficult although he had practiced martial arts in the past. But, I thought I would give it a try.

One of my relatives gave me the book Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa and invited me to learn the exercises at her home. I started to practice Falun Dafa.

We established a practice site and got Master Li's, the founder of Dafa, Fa-Lecture audio tapes, so my husband could listen to them. Every night I went to the practice site to do the exercises after work.

My husband's wound was healed within a week and he started to walk with two crutches. In addition, his long-term headache due to inflammation of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord during his childhood, disappeared. My son's and my health also improved. The entire family benefited from practicing Dafa.

Cultivator Should Not Harm Others

My husband often talked about appealing for medical benefits because of the malpractice. We had a chance to get 100,000 yuan in compensation. This was not a small figure for us. Since my husband's workplace went bankrupt and we had to pay many of his medical expenses from our savings, we had financial problems.

However, when I held those thoughts, I remembered what Master taught us.

Master said,

“Therefore, when some people have some tribulations or misfortune, they are repaying their karma in accordance with the retribution of their karma … You should always be benevolent and kind to others, and consider others when doing anything. Whenever you encounter a problem, you should first consider whether others can put up with this matter or if it will hurt anyone.” (Lecture four, Zhuan Falun)

Maybe we treated the doctor badly in a previous life and owed him. It could be that we just paid our debt, while on the surface it looked like a malpractice case.

“We should give up the thought of appealing and suing,” I said to my husband. “Maybe we owe this doctor from a previous life. No matter if we win or lose the lawsuit, we will harm the doctor and we will feel bad in our hearts. I cultivate Falun Dafa now and I should not harm others.”
