Have been wanting to post for months. I am ready to give up trying to help myself. Since my post would be a novel, I'll summarize. I was hit by a car, thrown through the windshield before being thrown on the street while walking 8 yrs ago. Sustained a broken left leg, shattered left pelvis and small fractures in back. After trauma surgery and leaving inpatient rehab, I did outpatient PT, successfully regained mobility and was able to walk again. The following year my Crohns had me in hospitals constantly. I was still working but was deathly ill. Failed biologics etc. Food commercials had me dry retching. Fast forward to 2012 and my emergency bowel resection. I recovered from that but due to job changes and my health, I took mandatory early retirement. Had no money but applied for SSDI and received approval. 29 mos. Later Medicare kicked in and I had a supplement. My early wd monies paid bills. I have had pain since 2010 and was on Rx oxyvontin, etc since that time. In 2016 I called 911 reluctantantly and was informed by my neurosurgeon that "I was dead when he got to me". I had an infection in my spine and had major neurosurgery, grafts,disks removed, and rods inserted. I had been w my drs office for 35 years and in pain management. Was told by PA that I would be weaned and I was. I never abused, sold it violated contract until my last two months. Because of this fact, I've been suffering since June. I will take responsibility for my stupidity but I did not mention that I was happy to wean, and was advised by the first specialist I visited to work with an anesthegeologist. I'm suffering, i take sdvil and aspirin and my crohns protests. I'm in pain, don't sleep, lost more weight nd because of poor judgement, and drs mistake, feel as though I've been tossed aside to die after fighting for my life 3 times. I'm angry and I need advice.
