Hi all this is my first post, I live in pain everyday as do all of you... but how do you deal with it and how do you deal with watching life pass us by? I have worked at the same job for 14 years and have suffered a long term work injuy. I am waiting on wc to approve and of cource they
have denied the surgery so now the lawyers are on it.
i have 2 herniated disc L4,L5 and s1 has a tear, constant left leg pain swelling of the leg numbness in my toes,mus spasams tender to the touch and so on...I ave found alot of comfort in reading all of your post and it helps me not feel so alone.
I started having problems last year in may with my back and out of fear of losing my job I tried to just deal with it and not go through w/c but in oct. I hurt my back worse and my new boss made me fill out the w/c paper work and life as not been the same since!!! I have a lawyer now to help deal with them and I have already met with the w/c attorney but now that the DR says I need to have a level one fusion they all of the sudden dont want to pay!!! the DR showed me the letter and I was so upset and I dont understand we already went over all of this but they want to see just how much of the surgery they are going to have to pay for, I have been at this job for 14 years and have gave more than 100% and now this is what I get!!! I worry everyday that when this is all done I will not have a job and then what I am a single mom and right now the DR will only let me work 2 hours a day (he lets me do this because he knows I am affraid of getting replaced) I just want to e fixed so I can go back to work and I am tired of being treated like I am just hanging out at home on vacation!!! I pray that w/c will do what is right but I am sure they wont without a fight!!! It just should not be like this
Thanks for any advice
