I was told that my work comp weekly checks will be ending in 5 weeks. It has been almost 2 yrs since my injury and I was told by the WC agent there were 5 weeks left and she set up an appt. with a DR she found on the internet to have a 2nd look which is actually my 5th DR. I had an IME in August of '09 and was told he thought I should try to be weened down on meds and try to get back to work w/ a 24 lbs. weight restriction and I shouldn't bend or stoop and I should be able to either sit or stand every twenty minutes. He wanted me to return to my current treatment at the pain clinic and when they discharge me that I should be put at MMI and get a rating. Well my pain clinic DR doesn't see it that way and says nothing had been done prior to seeing him really I've been bounced around from one clinic to the next. My issue is that I had asked right after my IME if I could go get a 2nd opinion from a neurologist since I had only seen one and he wasn't good and I have a alot more nerve issues since I saw him a month after my accident in '08. She said no that she thinks I have seen enough DR's and I should just report back to my pain clinic and more than likely they will discharge me. Well it's been 8 mo's and still not released for work or discharged. I can barely walk or sleep or sit or get out of bed even yet. My issue is that now WC wants me to go elsewhere to get another opinion when she wouldn't let me do that, and on top of that the DR she wants me to see is a General Practitioner. So I'm going backwards, anyway that's a brief version of my story and does anyone know how or if there are ways to get extensions on payments without just giving up and saying screw treatment for myself and quit it all to go get a job to support my wife and two kids. It's been hard on my family thus far we have nothing and my kids are having trouble understanding, well they do I should say it's not easy and I used to pay for everything and my wife did daycare but it was just extra money, and with the economy that has even dwindled down to a few kids being that parents are getting laid off. Sorry about the rambling just looking for a way to keep the roof over our heads and food on the table without jeopardizing my recovery if that's what you call it when WC is involved.
