# 2664 Don’t Lag the Healing of Lag Baomer

Q. My father who is in need of a hernia operation in about a month, due to the cancellation of another patient, was given his spot, which is on Lag Baomer. His operation is not that urgent and could wait.
Should he take the opportunity and do it early on Lag Baomer? Is that a correct thing to do?
A. Nitei Gavriel (Pesach 3: 42: 7) quoting from Segulos Yisroel in the name of the Arizal, mentions that Lag Baomer stands for the symbol of Hod ShebeHod, and is a prime day for refuos, healing, and brochos. Similarly, Tzemach Tzedek, Hilula D’Rashb”i, Lechem Shlomo,Sifsei Tzadikim and others maintain that refuos are granted on Lag Baomer. They mention, that the gematrya of the day also alludes to its unique power.
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that he should better have the operation early on Lag Baomer. As mentioned the day has special segulos for yeshuos and refuos.
