I went to appt with an Ortho Surgeon Thursday & he said surgery was not an option. He said since I had already met with another surgeon & the first doctor said surgery was not an option, he didn't see surgery helping me. He did suggest that I go 2 an neurologist for the weakness & numbness thru out my body, but this doctor not be associated with Worker's Comp. I prayed I would get some help but when the company's attorney calls you & tells u that the doctor isn't going to recommend surgery & I should take the settlement I knew help wouldn't come. I learned so much from this site & knew surgery was the next step but the doctors are afraid 2 go against each other. I am getting weaker by the day & losing more strength in arms & legs. I am unable 2 work & have any type of life anymore. My GP is the only help I have found. He has prescribed Norco-10 mg, Baclofen-20 mg & Latvian-0.5 mg. He said I need a nerve study done but that cost is 800.00 & I don't have that. The WC doctors never did any type of testing other than an MRI to help me. I know that something more should be done but WC isnt going to do anything. My daughter is working extra shifts to get me 2 a neurologist close by because we have learned that waiting 2 long with nerves that are impinged will only cause further damage. Keep me in your prayers & thank you for help.
