Yes, I can relate to what he is doing. My ortho doctor released me last year after he deemed that my broken back should be healed enough for him to no longer be involved. I have been in constant pain since my back injury and he told me that time would take care of the problem. Well two weeks ago I had an MRI ordered by the workmans comp people because they didn't understand why I was still complaining about back pain. It turns out that my back has not healed at all since the last MRI by ortho doctor did in June of last year.
So now they are trying to get me to do something called a kyphoplasty even though the treatment wasn't developed for my type of injury. Personally I think they are just trying to get me to the point where I am not totally disabled in their opinion.
