I have done my homework, and yes i never sugarcoat anything. i have a daily diary of symptoms and side effects and how it affects my life. i have documented everything...being very organized this time. i have sent them so much paperwork that they will be informed as best as i can do. i also have this company working for me that deals exclusively with disability cases, so i am hoping they will get it done. i also have good doctors/therapists that will write in depth reports on what i have been going through this last year. i go in monday for a bowel resection. the drain catheter that has been in for 36 days now isnt working to get rid of the abscesses/fistula, so doc decided its time to do the surgery. i will continue on the remicade afterwards he said. hoping this will work, because i am really tired of all this and this catheter sucks!!!!thanks for the replies and advice. i know disability is a long process and i have to be persistent....but you are right about the sugar coating....i probably give more detail than they can stand. i am in for the long haul...wish me luck.
i will be in the hospital a week, so i will keep you posted after i am back home..............good day to all!!!
Hi LOST how are you doing now? First of all i had both abscesses and 2 fistula's for almost a year and a half of drainage and pain but as soon as i started my Remicade they were able to take out the sionet and it was gone for good healed completely and knock on wood i never got one back since.Your second question about
getting a disability it can take a long time how ever it sounds like you have all your eggs in your basket and the support of your doctor that is the most important thing really,they like to see all your tests,blood work,cat-scans,ultrasounds,scopes reports from specialist E.T.C once they have all the info they need they will make there decision if for any reason you are denied which with all your health conditions i can't see it but if you do you can always appeal it i got my disability the first time around it took about
3 months ot get my first check and i was 24 at the time i also live in Canada here i don't think you get the back-pay if you do I'll be calling someone cause i never got mine i hope that is something you were looking for LOST and I'm so sorry to hear that your going back to the hospital soon for your bowel resection good luck feel better soon you have been through a lot its your time to relax for sure and like i said i can't imagine why you wouldn't be eligible for your disability.
