Hi PA lady,
What the heck is a moderate concussion anyway? I thought that a concussion was a concussion....guess I should have asked the doctor that question , huh....LOL Well, at least my head is still attached. That must count for something??
I was hoping by now that you would have found some information about getting some reduced cost or free health insurance in Pennsylvania......what about all those ones they advertise on tv? Can you get one of those? I forget what the names of them are, but here in NY, they advertise these health care policies that anyone can purchase, with preexisting conditons and all are covered. Next time I see the commercial, I am going to write it down so that I can remember what it is called and maybe you might be eligible for something like that????
One never knows.
I am noticing that there are things that I can't remember.....it's weird, I go to say something and forget the name of what it is, or can't recall the word for something......I think that I might mention that to the doctor when I see him again and see if it is related to my head.....trying not to worry myself...
He said that he can hear the fluid in my lungs, so the antibiotics need to be kept up for at least two more weeks and if that doesn't work, IV antibiotics instead....they better find a way to do home antibiotic therapy because I don't do hospitals if I can possibly avoid it.

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
