Cervical spine injury question
#5
I was on neurotin but had to quit it due to side effects. I recently started Lyrica, and am on a low dose.

How soon will you have the ACDF? The neurosurgeon wanted mine done yesterday, and I have been able to delay the surgery for 3 months but with the cord and nerve root at C5-6 I really don't know how much longer I can delay surgery.

Problems is I have 3 special needs children in the home, my oldest two are old enough they will be okay but my youngest is 12 yrs and is Autistic, I will need to get child care for him while I have surgery.

I was injured in an auto accident in 2007, went thru physical therapy for the cervical injury.
I had 3 sessions of traction February 2010, saw the neurosurgeon March 2010 and was told the neck was stable and no additional treatment was needed.

July 29th I saw the work comp doctor and while he was doing the exam he pushed down very hard with his hands placed on the top of my head, then forced my head to turn side to side while pushing down. I asked the doctor to stop and told him he was hurting me but he continued to push down. A few hours after that appointment the headache started and lasted for 32 days, I also experienced very high blood pressure durning this time.

My primary doctor orderd an MRI and that is when I learned of the damage done to my neck.

I have not added this to my work comp claim, in fact when the attorney for the insurance company learned about the neck injury she offered to settle the claim for the amount my attorney was requesting. I have a settlement hearing scheduled for next week.
