« Things that really don’t seem like a big deal at first can really be, » she said. « The only reason I probably would have ended up as a quadriplegic was because I didn’t act, and I wouldn’t have had anyone to blame except myself

« So take action everyone Don’t just sit back and say, ‘It’s okay, I need to go to work, I need to do this, I need to do a book tour ‘No, you have to take care of your health, go see a doctor « 

Orman’s first symptoms came when she was unable to climb the stairs and lost sensation in her right hand Doctors ordered three MRI scans, including one of her brain, but she continued to postpone them for nearly two months during the pandemic, which she called « the stupidest mistake I could ever make in my life »

When she finally got the tests, they discovered that 80% of her spinal cord was cut by a non-cancerous tumor

Orman, 69, underwent 12-hour surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, under the supervision of Dr. Michael Groff

« The tumor has been completely removed, so that should never bother again, and I think even if it will continue to improve for a full year, I think it will come back to 999% (of what she was before), « Groff said on TODAY

« My left arm still isn’t what it should be » she said « Nerves are reacting now so left arm is pulling It’s like it’s on fire all the time It’s really still hard for me to use my neck I still can’t go too far forward or backward because they took out two vertebrae and put on a titanium relay or what they did there

« But it’s happening and I’m fine Everything, I’m so happy that in a year I’ll be back to what I’m meant to be »

Orman said that when she started to experience symptoms, she saw a doctor for her leg, who told her she needed a brace and to strengthen her quadriceps muscles. She also saw a doctor for her hand and was told it could be carpal tunnel syndrome

« I didn’t want anything wrong, » she said « I wanted to believe them because I didn’t want to think that something was wrong even though I knew it wasn’t something they were saying , that’s why it’s so important

« Nothing is more than important than your health It’s almost like saying you don’t go to a doctor who will tell you what you want to hear, almost go to a doctor who will tell you what that you don’t want to hear « 

Orman pointed out that not all financial advice in the world will matter if you don’t take care of your health first

“The only way to beat fear is action,” she said “I was the one who said stay in your truth, don’t deny anything about money. money means nothing if you don’t have your health, and the truth is too many Americans today are discouraging going to the doctor They don’t want to act, they don’t want to know what’s going on with them «
