Well lawyer called me and said the IME report is recommending a second surgery, and agrees with my NS approach.
Lawyer also said that i now have a nurse case manager assigned to me and will be at all my doctor appts. She is part of w/c.
So she met me today at my NS appt. and my PM appointment, and told my NS that she will be also stating to w/c to approve surgery.
So NS said probably another 4 to 6 weeks til i have the surgery.
They asked if i quit smoking and i'm at about 1/2 pack a day, and my kids keep on me about it, but with the stress i'm under and facing it alone, quitting is no small task. Something that a non-smoker might not realize.
So the doctors and the nurse mgr. are gonna push w/c to approve prescription "chantix", for me and i took the script to walgreens, and awaiting approval.
I know i should quit. I know i should quit. I also know i have a history of fusing while still smoking, but under a lot less stress, and mental fatique.
I'm not making excuses for still smoking but i've had my share of hard times.
From the ultimate betrayal by my then wife, to to my daughter's eye surgeries from her injury, then my injury, and all the finacial hardship that goes along with this mess.
So my NS nurse told me go home and relax, and she will call me when they have everything all in place.
And i and my ex go sign the papers with the bank tomorrow for them foreclosing, then we are offically done with that house.
Kinda funny when i told my daughter about the surgery, she told me i better stay in bed this time for the 8 weeks post-op recovery, and that she will take care of everything around the apartment. LOL.
Thanks for listening.
