He didn’t have the financial means to afford the specialized medical treatments for his back pains.
In the meantime, he ignored the aches that accompanied him while he operated the crane at work. And when his back pain was too much to bear on some days, he resorted to taking painkillers.
His method of soothing his pain worked at first. But, when he hit his 50s, his back pains came back, stronger than ever.
It happened one day while he was operating a crane at work. Suddenly, he felt a searing pain shoot up his spine. The pain was so strong that he keeled over in his seat, gasping heavily.
His co-workers immediately called 911, and he was brought to the hospital’s emergency room.
