My neurologist office called today and informed me that the specialist ( who is a affiliate of them) declined seeing me since another surgeon had performed my two previous surgeries. They said that they were trying to get me a appointment with another affiliate who will deal with surgeries performed by other surgeons. Since my original surgeies were done in Pittsburgh Pa area in 2008 and in 20010 I moved back to my home town of Le Roy Ny. Boy did this make me feel even worse. I am told that the fusion needs to be completely redone, then told only certain surgeons will do it. I can understand where they are coming from, but makes you wonder if they are top surgeons or surgeons who aren't so good.
Pain Management appointment is Sept 12th since my appointment where I got the news about redoing the fusion I have been having major anxiety attacks, panic attacks with just the thought of doing it over. This adds to my stress and irritability ( my poor kids and boyfriend).
Spoke to my comp attorney today who said to me well Sheryl it takes time for the bones to fuse I said ummm I am 3 years post up and was released back to work with no restrictions in April 2008. Now since they found this I have been completely taken out of work with restrictions on vaccuming lol... I am so very confused and distraught these days. I am getting better with accepting the way my kids clean compared to my expectations of clean. You guys will probably see me on Hoarders in a few years lol j/k
Anyway I hope all is well with everyone
Have a great great week
