Hello.In 2012 I gotten hurt on the job,I was lifting up a counter top at one end to put it on a cart to be stained,after that i felt my left arm hurting.That night and the next day my left arm and hands and fingers were very much swelling.I told my supervisor.Anyway,they done a report and sent me to a prime care doctor.For,one month I kept going to this doctor because the pain was still there and in my neck.One Doctor finally sent me to an Orthopedic doctor,he done an ex-ray,but couldn't see anything,Had an MRI done,one day later his nurse called me to say that I had a pinched nerve and that my C/4C/5 was bulging.Went to see a neurosurgeon. xxxxx said that I need surgery to fix it.So,on Dec.7.2012 I had a neck infusion with a cadaver bone.I have been hurting alot and the doctor told me that my infusion is not healing,I told xxxx that I am having pain on my left arm now.He order a ex-ray and another MRI.I have had my surgery done 7 month ago.So,here is where I am at now.Had an appointment on July 16,2013.Since I am under workers comp they assigned a nurse for me so she goes to every doctor visit. So the doctor calls me 20 minutes before my appointment and talks to me over the phone I had to put that nurse on my cell phone so she could hear what he said.xxxx told me that my infusion is not healing and that I have another bugling disk under and it is on my right nerve.And the reason on my left arm still hurting and can't lay my head down without still hurting.So,he wants to try shots in my neck.The nurse didn't understand and was upset that he should have told me at my appointment and not over the phone.So,she talked to my workers comp case manger they went and gotten a different doctor,i had to go see.I went on Friday Aug,1,2013.The doctor looked at the mri and ex-ray and said that he does'nt see where it is not healing up and no other bulging disk.He thinks that xxxx just only read the report and not seen the disk.But,he still can't understand why I am still having problems. My left arm still hurts me more than my right.I am having these electric picky feelings on the left side on my face and neck and it goes down my arm and fingers.But,yet he said that he can't really give me an answer yet.This doctor asked the nurse,So,what do you want me to do?She said,"We want you to take over her case now.So he has order a ct scan because you can see it all better and a nerve studied.The nurse asked about working,so he has put me back at work but no lifting over 10lbs no bending pushing,pulling no twisting.My job is all that and more.Now mind you have to drive over 30 miles to see this doctor now than I was driving 8miles to my other doctor. So,I don't know what to think about all this am so confused.Could someone help me out and give me some advice.I have called a lawyer.
