And PS: Take charge of your life!

Two and a half years ago I fell and hurt my back, severely. I herniated three disks. I have been in a lot of pain, but due to stupid doctors I went undiagnosed for 2 years. I had one doctor (who is head of surgery at a hospital I won't mention) tell me he didn't know what was wrong and that he should just cut me open and see what we can find...
Yeah…Quack quack. I suggested we try a few more test first. He looked at me and said, no lie, "Oh, yeah. That's a good idea." I left (ran) out of his office.

A year later, and still in a lot of pain, I went back to my primary care doctor and asked for an MRI for the third time. He said, again, that it would be a waste of time since what we were dealing with was torn rib muscle (his latest diagnosis). Mind you I'd seen him three times already and each time he suggested we try a new pill, which I refused. 
I started for the door, then stopped and turned back to the quack, I mean doctor, and said, "I really want an MRI." 
I took charge. I was tired of the idiots telling me to take a pill or have surgery. He consented, again insisting I was crazy for wasting my money.
They found THREE herniated disks! Now I am on my way to healing...hopefully! But along the way I gained some weight since I haven't been able to move. When I saw this Dr. Oz clip, I felt it was the right thing for me to try. So as I work to get my life back by implementing his suggestions, please wish me luck!!
