I wasn't sure how to title this post. I was diagnosed with DDD, impingement of the disc between C5 and C6 on the nerve root and osteophytes at the end of June last year.
I've had several MRI's, CAT Scan so far. Each time I have an appointment with my neurosurgeon its a month out at least. Now its mid-Jan and no surgery yet. My wife is extremely anxious because she is afraid I'll lose my job. I have until June 2nd to avoid losing my job.
My Claims Manager for my LTD Claim says if it looks like I will still be on LTD 3 months before June 2nd she will initiate a SSDI application for me. The LTD Company has their own lawyers and claim they have a high success rate the first time around on the application.
My next appointment with my neuro is now March 2nd. Somewhere in all this I'm supposed to have an EMG.
I'm not particularly worried myself. I do worry about how my wife is going to take all of this. The only thing I can think of is to tell her to take it one day at a time and trust the Lord. What happens is in His hands (my opinion).
