Barrow to receive surgery for his ailing back

Dean Barrow

As we reported earlier this week, Prime Minister Barrow will be traveling to Los Angeles where he is scheduled to undergo surgery on his ailing back.  While it was rumored that the P.M. would be away on an extended leave of absence, he told the media, following today’s house meeting, that if the operation is successful he will be back in the country by November fourteenth.  The surgery, he says, will alleviate eighty percent of the pain he is suffering in his back.

“The doctor has told me is that he believes that it will be a little taxing because of the long flight from LA. He believes that I could actually come back as early as Wednesday, I set it for the Thursday just to give myself that extra room. IN fact he thought that if I pushed it I could be back by Tuesday. In any case after I come he says that it should require no more than a week before I can start going into office. He says in that first week that I return to office I should only do two to three hours a day and I should try to avoid the long drive to Belmopan. So maybe I should work out of Belize City or if I go to Belmopan I should lie flat in the back of the vehicle. But after that second week it is of his view that is should pretty much be back to normal to my work schedule. Thereafter if all goes well I should be able to say Halleluiah and start a proper exercise regimen and hopefully get he believes like eighty percent pain relief in consequence of the surgery and the recovery.”


The prime minister remains uncertain whether he will be working out of Belmopan or from his office here in Belize City upon his return from Los Angeles, while he recuperates from surgery.

    Better plan, in between there is Hattieville. Lie flat in the bunk being set up for you. There will Belizean chocolates on your pillow when you arrive, and the sheets turned down for you by your man servant, the Honorable Elvin Penner, and your personal valet and masseuse, the Honorable Edmund Castro.

    Medical rehab in Hattiville prison is considered the best in the world, far better than anything you will get in Los Angeles, New York or Chicago. Bring Honorable Contrerass, your boss, with you to play cards with, he can tell you where all the money is.

    If this PM has severe back issues I can tell you that means he is always on pain medication. The strength of the medication that is needed to alleviate that kind of pain is powerful and it clouds your thoughts and judgement. Could this be why he throws childish tantrums and do not make sense at times. He reminds me of another leader by the name of Ben Laden.

    I had that back pain. It is excruciating 24-7. Its like fire and sparks running down your butt, legs and toes. It makes one miserable and cantankerous. Difficult to make decisions and always bex with people around you.. Its no joke. The cause of the back pain is usually a herniated disk or the narrowing and calcification of the bones in the vertebrae due to the normal process of aging. Exercise to strengthen the abdominal muscles help, Steroid and nerve block by means of an epidural directly into the affected are helps. This helped me and Thank God my back pain is gone. before the pain I was taking Hydrocodone and Oxycontin to help deal with the pain. these narcotics are helpful but can cause addiction.. Surgery is 50-50. Some people are scared of it because one can come out worse after surgery. I empathize with the PM. His situation is probably why his ministers are chancing him. When Price was sick, RALPH, MUSA and the whole crowd even Glen Godfrey started hustling social security money, loans and all kind of madarass, In this current situation, the hustle is for visas, not monies from the treasury or the people, Just from foreigners who get hustled by middlemen. The money hustled is given to the people in the form of school fees, food for the poor and housing. Belize was built on hustling, everyday people hustle to survive, Non party ls more adept in the hustle game than the opposition. When they get in the will do the same rass..Belizeans open Unu Eyes. Power to the People.

    Damn, I wish the poor people that is been robbed everyday get a chance to make a trip like that one day. Are you telling me that we are so backwards that the PM have to go to LA for a bad back? I think Barrow don’t trust his own doctors…..

    Just came back from speaking with GOD. He said despite the good wishes of the Opposition Leader in the Bad Back Barrow case, a decision has been made: the knife will cut the wrong way to make matters worse……….a reminder of the agony of the THIRTEEN neonates at the KHMH with NO ONE to BLAME.
