Finally my surgery has been approved and is going forward as planned on Aug 5th.
This started as a workmans' comp case. But as soon as surgery was mentioned they went balistic. They scheduled me for a 2nd opinion with another orthopedic surgeon just 6 days before my surgery...real nice. I've been dealing with this pain since April. Ive had work limitations. I work the 8hrs and then spend the rest of my awake hrs in bed due to the pain. Ive been unable to walk, do anything outside, missed most of my son's ballgames, some concerts etc etc. I want my life back!!!! besides dealing with gaining 15lbs..
So finally on Thursday we got the call....my insurance has approved the surgery as a medical claim. So I don't have to worry about workman comp's decision. I am so ready to move on with my life.
So I am celebrating and looking forward to my life after recovery!!!!
