authorization for my fusion surgery. I just found out late this afternoon. I had no idea that it hadn't be authorized yet.
I am so upset, I don't know what to do. I called them and the doctor said that they did not receive enough documentation of conventional treatments being used to date. Mainly he said that I did not go to physical therapy after my last surgery. I told him the pain was worse after the surgery, but I was told that they have their guidelines that they go by for authorizing.
I have gone through 5 rounds of physical therapy, countless prescriptions for pain medication and 2 surgeries already! I have had every part of my body MRI'd, CT'd, ultrasound'd and whatever other test that could be done.
I have to wait until tomorrow to talk to my doctor and see what happens next. I can appeal the decision. I need to talk to him first. I am in so much pain. I can't drive because I can't twist even a little to look over my shoulder, and pressing on the accelerator causes my right leg to spasm and cramp up.
Either way, the surgery on Thursday is not going to happen. I was crying after I got off the phone. I can't go to work, and I don't really know what is going to happen now.
I'm sorry to go on like that... I guess I just needed to get it out.
