Where do I begin? I have Posterior Central Disc Protrusion At C5-6 Produces Canal Stenosis And Indentation Of The Ventral Cord Syrface W/o Severe Cord Compression. Smaller Bulges And Protrusions Also Seen At C4-5 And C6-7. Asymmetric Facet Arthropathy Results In Distortion Of The Right Neural Faramen At C4-5. Blah blah blah? Basically, I am in a lot of pain. My insurance has denied my surgery twice based on the fact that I have not had 3 months of recent failed physical therapy. I have done many other therapies just not PT. So now I am getting PT so far for 3 visits, (basically to jump through the hoops). My question is will the insurance company hold me to that 3 months? My PT seems to think that after 6 visits she will call them and tell them that she cannot treat me anymore due to no relief and that they will then approve my surgery. Is this common? Anyone else dealing with this?
