I'm Back
Jul 26, 2003
Hi guys :bouncing:
It's been a long time since I posted.
Let me get you up to date.
As some of you know I have been battling my w/c and it's been a never ending battle. They were still deneying almost everything including treatment, long story short, I had a tie breaker done, a tie breaker is an honest independant Dr. chosen by the work comp. division in my state to preform an exam, the w/c carrier sends there records and their findings and my attorney sends ours, the Dr. goes through all of it and then does an exam. That Dr.s findings will stand and each side has to abide by that descion, well I went through that and am happy to report the report was all for me. The Dr shut down everything, every stinking lie the w/c carrier said about me, like I was excaberating on my symptoms, I was fine and nothing was wrong, and now they have to pay for my spinal cord stimulator. they are pissed [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_up.gif[/img] too bad bang,exclamation point
I also had to buy my new AFO (leg brace) $900.00 and they have to re-inburse me, plus start paying on all my past due bills. so anyways, I go for my temp. stimulator on Aug. 5 I am pretty scared but I will do anything to get rid of this un bearable leg, foot pain and the burning. so I will keep you posted as to how the trial stimulator went. sorry this is so long, catch ya guys later.bye :wave:

Hi, Successtory, Baxter and Linda :wave:
It is soooo good to hear from you guys ;)
I could not have come this far with out the great knowledge that I have learned from this site.
Succestory and Baxter you should be proud of all the info you give out to all of us chronic back pain sufferers, you are one of a kind:tup;
I should aso mention that I WON my social Security claim. Social Security fould me disabled all the way back to the date I got hurt at work, so yes I had back pay which it sure felt good to have a little money in my pocket and to pay up some bills and finally have some releif from the hounding bill collectors. I dident get rich but my God it sure did help. Almost like winning the lottery hee-hee :D
So I will keep you posted on how the stimulator went, hopefully it will work and then I can move on to the next step which is getting the pernament one implanted. Is there really light at the end of the tunnel? I will find out. God Bless you all. [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif[/img]

I was denied the first time and then I won my appeal. It took about 9 months to get the decision from the appeal board, I was told that I had good medical reports and one key thing, social security cannot deney nor grant someone disability bebefits unless they are paying someone else who has the same medical problems, in short, they told me they could not give me disability if they were not giving it to someone else with the same type of injury not could they deney me if they were paying someone else disablity befits, so I think they will be paying quite afew espically from this site. I was totally shocked cus things were just not going my way but it was such a gift and I thank God every day, after all that we have lost this was such a great blessing. Work comp is not HAPPY but I am :D
hope this gives you some good news, hang in there, everytime they ask for more medical proof try and get it in right away, good luck, [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif[/img]
