Hello All !
I havn't posted in along time... I do keep up with posts,as the members give me hope and courage. I have had a heck of a time since my ACDF surgery. I have been back to work full time for aprox. 4 months now. I am still in pain, however I do not have arm pain and numbing down arm and hand. So in short I believe the surgery was a success. I do have pain in center of my neck big time ! I have completed all P.T. (18 sessions) I am on same med program from PM doc as I was right after surgery. I have had probs. up & down levels of pain and overall taking my meds as prescribed. I have days of intense pain and l get off program of taking meds as prescribed. Anyway I will be going to QME doc in a couple of weeks. The package they sent ( has every question about pain and how my day and nights are) I will be evaluated by a PM doc. I have never seen so many questions regarding meds, past health issues, daily living, etc. I know to be the most honest but I am afraid of screwing this thing up ! I know I am ranting and writing in no particular order as thats how my brain works ! I would appreciate any feedback on your experiences with ratings and answering the book of questions ... I dont want to short short change myself in my rating ! I am not looking at the money just want to be taken care of medically . I have no lawyer and so far its pretty smooth. Well enough out of me... Again any shared experiences would be appreciated !
