I hope you are doing a little better today! I havn't been out of the house for a week! It's a long story, but I will try to make it short as I can! The forst time I got hurt Oct.2002, after a lot of test, and one real pain full one, one surgeon said I need tri fusion, everyone knows you can't do that, after 2 years of battling W.C. My Attroney talked me into settling foe peanuts and left my back open. I worked everyday except the day after I got hurt and when I would go out of town for tests,I made my Doctors appointments after work.for the next 4 years my back got worse everyday, but I did my job! The Supertendant changed W.C. companies! Mid July of 2006 I got 3 marker board to hang on the wall, the heavest was 439 lbs, and I had a 14 year old boy who weight was 98lbs, we would get a old one down, and a new one up, then the rest of the week I would lay on a mechanics creeper laying down and painting the base boards for the rest of the week, took 3 weeks we got them hung. On Dec 18, 2006 I was taking a small bag of trash to the dumpster! I feel down, when I got feelong back in my right leg, I put the trash up, and went inside and told the secratery that I had to go to the doctor and get a shot, he took me of work for good! 1 1/2 years go buy and my doctor makes me a appointment with a pain specailist, 2 days before I go, W.C. Stops its. 90 days to get a court date, after the court date, 3 days later, I get my Court Order telling My Doctor to make the appointment. 3 weeks goes by and I havn't hurd anything, my wife is gripping at me to call over there and find out what was going on. So I called, I as the lady that does the scheduling, what was the problem, she told me that I was to make the appointment, I told her that wasn't what the court order said, then she said I was on top of the stack (3 weeks) so i ask here what was it, was she going to, or was I going, I was mad now no back words but I can get read ruff and loud, she went to crying, and I ask her to give the phone to the head nurse, in 30 mins. I had my appointment. The next day, I got a register letter from the Doctor(who I thought was my friend , we had hunted and fish for over 20 years toghter) telling me he would no longer see me! I had a appointment in 8 days so he had to see me then, I told him that I couldn't just get a Doctor, it had to go threw court! I am on Fentanly patches, so he she's me after hours and rights my scripts, i go to court and get 3 doctors to pick from, 2 are W.C. Doctors and one I don't know, so i pick him, he turns me down, because he doesn't take cases allready going. So at this point I don't have a Doctor, I will be out of meds in a few days! i don't have the money to pay a ER Doc, and the patches are $200.00 a month and I will have to pay for them my self because the Er Doc's are not approved by W.C.
So I am lost, with no where to go! The patches state right on the package don't just stop taking, can and has caused death! No one seems to care, but my wife and I! I am so tried of not having a life being in pain all the time, I guess what ever happens happens!
There isn't anything I can do, and my attroney doesn't seem to be to worried!
Thanks for your consern Pete!!
You get better if you can!
