In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
Ekkorose, I thank you for telling me of your experience's! I am not out to start a Doctor war. I just feel that we don't get enough good care. I cannot believe that there isn't anything, that can help me with my pain! I have never ask for a mirical, just like to have a few days a week that I fely like doing something other than lying in bed!
Thanks for lovely times with some of the Doctors you have been to see!
thanks for your reply! My biggest problem and you can look this up is, Kansas is the worst state for Work Comp cases. They make up the rules as they go. about every 6 weeks, they will shut off my pay check of $224,00 a week, they do that just to try and upset me! It worked at first, but now I don't care. My biggest mistake I ever made, was ever Doctor or Surgeon, I would ask them to get me out of pain, instead of saying ( I wonder how much I will get Paid) I have every intension of going to trail, They like to send you to one of there Doctors and have you evauluate, and then they will come back with this crap, i find the patien at a 25percent of a body as a whole disability!!!
That isn't going to fly this time, you entire body depends on you lower back, if it is working right neither are you! i never wanted a dime, all i wanted was out of pain and to work! There are so many that all they want is to lay at home and cry about the pains, but they never want to go back to work! i wasn't raised that away, you work hard all your like to have something to show for all the hard work you have done!!
I have found only one Surgeon that realy cared, and spent time with me, and expained things to me, since I have no L5, L4, L3, disc left, yes you can go in there and fuse them! The first time you make the wrong twist or turn you tear L2 and Now you are done!! this surgeon explain this to me, he told me there wern't to many options, one I needed to quite smoking so I could get more oxygen in the spine, and do 2 differnt exercises, and hope! He could of said you need Tri fusion, done it screwed me for life and made him a pile of money and the hospital he worked for a pile.
It is said that not long after that they refused to re new his contract for he wasn't doing enough cutting!
I am trying my best to learn to take everyday as it comes! i have allways been a person to have my weeks work planned by Sunday night, and never let anything stand still. Where as my job, I allways had to have 2-3 going on at the same time, or you wouldn't ever get done(long story)
I wish each and everyone of you the best, I hope that you all can get out of pain and get your life back on track! And that doesn't mean sitting on the sofa eating a candy bar a drinking a soda watching TV. What i mean is get your self to a liveable lifestyle, and go for it!
To me, and PLEASE no one take offense to this, you have very few right left in this world. Some people never have to go threw what your rights are, but, they are not like they use to Be!! 6 years agp our telephone co. put in underground cable, that destroy my yard, I went out as they were starting and stopped them, called the polive called the Head offical of the city, and he open this big book, and show me that by the city ordenaces they could of trenched within 8 feet off my house! And my house sits on the back of my lot, I had a nice 65 foot lawn, it will never be the same! It is just like me trying to get a Doc, the Doctor that I have dealt with for 30 years got to thinking about my injury and didn't what to spend his time in court, so the first time I goy out of line, he dumps me, i have no doctor, They are to be scheduling me a hearing to get a new doctor, I am on fentanyl, I will be out come Sat. What am I going to do? You talk about a rock and a hard spot, I am there!! I can go it another Doctor and pay him a $100.00 and maybe he will right me a script??? I can't get my money back, I have went over my spending limit. I havn't had a check for 2 weeks, and I get $224.00 a week! I am lost!!
You have no rights!
You might think you do, but you don't
Well Guys, i just got in my car, and parked right buy his office window, 3hrs later I see him waving me to come in, he check me over and wrote me my patches. i told him it might be a 60 days, before I get to court, he said we would deal with it
I have no clue what is going on
Folks, you got the wires crossed, someone else postedthat there Doctor got closed down by the DEA. My doctor was waiting on a reason to quite treating me, so if this goes to trail, he doesn't have to go. Here is the Story, I went to a Surgeon at KU, 4hrs from my house, I got 2 mins. with him, he said I needed to see a pain spesicalist, so I told my Doc, i din't have a way to get to K.C. with a driver to drive me home, and couldn't afford it. That I wanted to go to Joplin Pain center 32 miles away! W.C. attroney, stops my pay, and says I am now treating my self be cause my doc got me a apoitment at joplin They stopped the appointment 90 days to get to see the Judge, he told her (W.C. Attoney) she was a dumb ass, and i could go to any pain clinic my local doctor wanted me to go to!Takes 3 weeks to get the Court order, I hand deliver the court order to the lady that does the scheduling, 3 weeks later I still don't have a appointment, for a week, before my wife goes to work, she is screaming at me, you need to call over to your Doc to see what going on, after the 6th day of this, I call over to ask what was the hold up, the young gal said that I was to make the appointment, and I said that wasn't my understanding, then see snapped back at me, and said you are on top of the stack, that pissed me, and after 6 1/2 years of 24/7 pain you are never in a good mood any way, so i ask her, what is it, am I to make it or are you, she snapped back and said you are not the only paitencet we have! then i got hot, got the head nurse on the phone 15 mins. I have a appointment. The next day I get a register letter stating that my doctor will no longer see me. i wrote several letters of apoligies and so fourth, the Doctor said, it wasn't his policey it was St. Jihns, and what is done is done. I ask him what i was to do, he told me to start detoxicing off the fentayal, he saw me 2 more months, I notifed my attroney that i was going to have a new doc!With Kansas W.C. you have to have a hearing to pass gas!! And after it gets put on the docit, it might be 120 days?? My last visit 29 days ago, i was told no go, buy! And I said what about the morphine and he said O, because the pamplet says DON'T JUST STOP TAKING AT ONCE, CAN CAUSE DEATH! So he said no I had to have it that he would see me after work.
So I was out of this med, so I new he would have to go into his office sometime, and if he shuts me off, it could cost him a big mal practice suite. One big thing, Doc and I used to be real good buddy untill he got remarried to a real nice lady, and so we don't do anything toghter, and he was allways worried because of that, it might cause me problems, but I have 5 surgeons says no go!
