Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
I am going to see my orthro surgeon today and i need advise on how to get him to actually treat my issues and pain. I had a discectomy l5 s1 in Jan. 2011 and recently had a fall(5 weeks ago) where i fractured 4 vertebrae and re-ruptured my l5. After the fall i ended up in the hospital for 4 days. So far they have put me on steroids, muscle relaxers, and PT. I am in so much pain i can hardly walk let alone do anything besides lay around. I feel like my doc thinks that all i want to pain meds but really i just want to be out of pain and back to a "normal" life with back pain. I know the laws are stirct with narcotics these days and i'm not asking for them but i can't take the pain anymore. Anyone have any suggestions on what i can ask my doctor about? Treatments? Medication? Anything?
