Return to Work and symptoms are worst
#5
First, I'm so sorry to hear that your injury got worst. I am quite scare and you just put everything in perspective for me. My MRI shows nothing also, hopefully the insurance company will allow me to see another doctor to look over my MRI. Thank you again and wish you the best

I fell on my right side and I thought "yea it will hurt for a while". I never fell so hard in my life.
I wanted to let you know that my job was the most important thing. I didn't care about my health. I was going to get through this.
Well I ended up almost dying from it. I got to the point that I was once very active and now on bed rest.
I developed dvt and then pulmonary embolism.
My husband would ask what is more important your life or your job way before this.
I recently wrote my MRI that was clean and showed no problem. Was just re-read by another Doctor and said I had a torn disc on the 2008 MRI. That would of been nice to know in 2008. I was made p & s last May. Last day of work was June 28. My injuries were so bad that I couldn't go back to my customary job. The job I wanted so much.
I don't mean to scare you but, you need to heal before this all becomes chronic.
I'm trying to give you the short version.
I belong to a union and that really helped me.
It's still very hard road. I'm on SDI. I have now stop being so depressed. Thats why I put Freedom. Freedom to enjoy life again. Worried since June and once again not about my health. But, over losing a job. I finally have learn a life lesson that I should have all ready of known. Life is everything. So I'm very happy to have a second chance at life.
Hope you get the treatment you need.

From what you have said it sounds like you are only going down hill and if you don't get some real help you may be out of work for the rest of your life. Now most think it sounds like so much fun to be off work for life, but they don't think about the daily pain and suffering. And don't forget WC doesn't pay for pain and suffering. What you need to remember is nobody gets rich off WC and at the end of the day your health is so much more important. You sound like you have seen the pain and suffering enough that I don't think you want to deal with it everyday for the rest of your life. It's nice to try and work with your employer but at the end of the day most injuried workers are nothing more the a number to them, and the bottom line is how much is it going to cost to get you to go away

You are so right about that. I can be replace just as easy as I got hired. Thank you for your input.

Thanks Jayne, I called in sick today to go see my doctorand because of the pain I've been experiencing. He probably will offer to give me a shot which only covers up the problem not cure it, but I'll see what he says this time. Thanks again.
