Wow...i should be recovering rt now from a 4-5 level ACDF, instead Im now fighting to get the surgery at all. A dr who has never evaluated me made this decision on my behalf. I was warned by the insurance co to not get any drs involved and go thru the motions of the appeal process that could take up to a year. Ive put this off for 2 years because of knee surgeries that had to happen but was one failer after another followed by fractures that wouldnt heal and I have about 5 more to go. I cant turn my head anymore and my right arm is being compromised now too. I cant deal with the pain. Im getting no sleep. Any suggestions? Im about to give up.
