My case was settled i n 1992. I got a small award and lifetime medical for my lumbar. I live in Ca. and apparently they can now change the rules. I've had 8 surgeries and I'm disabled, depressed and in lifetime pain.
I need anti depressants and breakthrough meds for my pump. The pump doctor WILL NOT increase my dose to a level that will control the pain. I'm at 3.268 per day . Others that I have checked with that have similar situations are getting 2 or 3 times that much.
The Work Comp. started harassing me about 2 yrs. ago. And finally decided to cut off my meds. My Dr. wrote up my condition and why I need these meds. So they took the case to a federal "mediation service" And he ok'd my anti depressants but not the pain meds.
They did all of this without me ever seeing a Dr. or any other professional.
No attorney will take my case because I got my small award to split with my attorney, and l also was awarded LIFETIME medical back in 1992. I don't know what to do.
