Glad I found this site -
I am 39 years old and have been injured in varying degrees through out my life. With a few different surgeries in my life time. I have been in a few bad car accidents over the years and my last one appears to have been the tipping point while it was the one I walked away from. So on to the brief history:
As a child:
Appendix removal do not recall age
As an adult:
MVA – head on collision (not at fault) air lifted to hospital, compound fracture of left femur (nailed, rod still in leg), closed head wound, swelling of brain losing 5mm of frontal lobe, loss of memory (some things I still do not recall, some I do better than others)
MVA – rear ended (not at fault) low/mid back pain, loss of feeling in left hand, head aches, back muscle spasms, confusion, mood swings, CT’s at ER found nothing. Primary MD did not wish to see me after learning I was in an MVA. Spoke with me and charged me full price for visit and advised I was OK. Chiroprator, noted issues with back and muscles and ordered MRI, showing C5-6 issues with protrusion and impingement of thecal sac. New Doctor is reviewing finding and records from my old doctor, has Prolo in office and we are awaiting NS to review MRI and suggestions/opinion.
Now out on Short Term Dis. And battling with insurance company and benefits dept of my employer. New doctor does not accept any insurance so everything is out of pocket. Going broke fast. I have three kids I love dearly and thank God they were not in the car with me at the time of the accident. I am no longer to pick them up, carry them to bed ect. They are 9, 4 and 2 1/2.
8} going crazy with it all :?? :''( :O
