first off howdy everyone,
i don't spell very good and spell worse now than ever.
Here is my story, and i am in need of help PLEASE. Around Oct 23, 2002, I was unloading a fence line mower that was banded in a crate. It was in the back of my pickup truck, I was a maintence and or everything else person a rurul k-12 school, being the only male out there I pulled the crate far out enough to ease it to the ground, and then I was going to walk it down, so I could un crate it! about 3/4th the way down the bands that was holding it in place in the crate broke, letting the mover slam to the bottom of the crate, with the most of the weight to the right side, when that happen, it felt like some one had just ran a hot steel rod down my low back down to my foot. so after a few minutes of the numbness went away, i went into the secretary office and told her that i had just hurt my self, and i might of hurt my self bad, she told to go to the doctor, it was close to quiting time so I told her i would be okay. This was on a friday. So when I got home, I took a Shower, had supper and went and laid down in bed, all weekend the pain got worse, so monday morning I went to the Doctor, e did a examine then a xray, gave me some muscle relaxerand some vicoden, but wanted me to take some time off, I mentioed that most likely wouldn't set good with my Boss (something to long to go into) so the next day O went to work, doing my job as if nothing was wrong, eating vicoden and advil and anything else I coild get my hands on. To keep this from being 6 pages long, i will skip a lot, every month the pain got worse and we started more test sonagram, MRI, neorsurgen, he wanted a disc o gram!! I will never ever have another one of them!!! The disc o gram showed L3, L4,L5, we torn. This is where some one got some cash. I went back to the Surgeon, and he walked in and told me and the wife, he had good news, and bad news, He told us, that I needed tri fusion done and I was a perfect canidate for it, because I wasn't over wieght and had good musle tone, the bad news was, he was taking his practice back to his home area, and that he is the only one around that can do a tri fusion! I can't tell youwhat happen betwwen Him talking to my wife and myself and the letter that he wrote to my Doctor saying I needed agressive P.T. Before P.T. I could sit in a recliner and watch TV, after P.T. I cannot! I never missed work unless I had a appointment out of town. I made all my local Dr. appoinments after work. sometime in 2004 my Attroney tells me that I wasn't gpoing to get anymore test, all the surgeon I saw said that tri fusion is a no go!! So i settle for peanuts, but leave my back injury open. In the summer of 2006 the head man decides he has waited long enough, and he changes Work Comp co. July 1, 2006 , on or around late July 3 new marker boards were deliveredto my school, for me and a 98lbs 14 year old boy to hang these, the big board weight was 439lbs, according to my work contract if I refuse to do this I can be let go for no reason, so me and the boy put them up 1 a week, because after putting one up om monday I would lay on the floor paint the Base boards. Come Friday night, I would shower and would not get out of the untill time to go to work Monday moring. In Nov. of 06 we had a big snow, I tought care of 7 acre school. On Dec 18th 06 I fell down going to thr trash dumpster. When I got up I went strait to the docor, where I was taken of work for good, so here we go again, about a year ago I got put on the Fentanyl pain patch, we worked up to the 100mg patch and i was hurting very much, after 2 months, my wife my son, my brother, my dad, all told me that I was going to have to get reduce down on this stuff because I was acting crazy, so we went 75mg. 6 months ago I went to KU med center to see a surgeon, he said nothing could be down except, pain magamnent, KU is 4hrs, Joplin is 38mins, so i told my Doc that I wanted to go to Joplin. He got me a apoitment, and the day before Work comp cancelled it and cut my pay off, back to court W.C. said I was Doctoring myself, my Attroney explained and I got a court order to go to Joplin.The day I got my court order, I took it over to my Doctor office, and had them give it ti the lady how takes care of that. Within hours she called me and said she would get right on it! 3 weeks I had not heard anything, except my wife shouting at me to call over there every morning, so I called, This gal said That I was to make the appointment, and I said, i can't make the appointment, then se said I was on top of the stack, so I said i was confused, you have told me 2 different stories in10 mines. Then she said you are the only one I have to scheudle things for, I was ujp set and said let me talk t the head nurse, within 15 mins, I got a call back with my appointment time!
The next day, I get a registered letter from the Doctor office, saying that they would no longer provide me with medical treament, Now I went to court to get him a my Doc.So I ate crow wrote appolige letters, no luck, so i caught him and told him, I could just go get a Doctor and I couldn't quit the patches, he said you right, so he seen me for 3 more months, but didn't reduce the oatches, one time he up it, so I had to wait to get that fixed, I get a letter last week stated that I have had enough time to get a Doc, I don't think he can just stop precribing the meds, untill he gets me off of it>
Do you? The pamplet says DO NOT JUST STOP USING THIS PATCH, THAT DEATH COULS ACCOUR??
HELP ME PLEASE
