Hello Forum and to all my friends.(1171,Old Redneck,Jayne,Bronco) I need more imput. I went for a WCF yesturday and got the rusults back from EMG. The Doctor(company DR.) said that I had some membrane instability in the bilateral medical gastro and L5-S1 paraspinal muscles. I also go for ESI Tuesday 8. I asked the Doctor(company DR.) If the ESI don't work what would be next or suggested. He said that he reccommended a Fusion, But I think at this point that only the Ortho sergeon can certify an opperation right? I really don't want to get surgery, but I guess we'll have to see what happens. I also found out that the insurance company offerd me $20,000 for the first settlement. Is this a low number for my injury?

Oh yes the ins would love for you to accept that, before a surgery... Make sure every attempt to fix you has been used, if a needed surgery is in the future that money can be a drop in the bucket.......
most negotiating strategies say start with a low number.
remember it's the medical $$ that count.
if there is a surgical possibility keep in mind the first attempts often fail and you may need a second.

Just wanted to add before surgery talk with a few doctors if you can. It could make you worse. Just please make a very well informed decision before you let them cut.
Hello friends! I just got back to the forum. I really do appreciate the replies to this thread. The information and advisr y'all give me is heeded and used to the fullest. Thank you again friends and it good to be back here at "THE FORUM" : )
