Finally got rating in...already settled
#1
Badboy, Limbo.....You two helped me so much with this I thgouth I would share with you and the rest of the group. Sparkey this should mean something to you. I got an extra 8% for 4 body parts.

Cervical, lumbar, shoulder, knee and ankle = 18% total body. I almost fainted. Glad I settled. Glad it's over. Glad I am out of the system. Will be here to help others whenever I can. Funny but since I settled I have been in more pain that normal. I think it might be the absence of the Neurontin. It totally releived my pain but I had a really dangerous side effect to it. I need to sit with a Dr. and see if it would be safe to take at a lower dosage and instead of upping it stick wherever it eases the pain.


Thanks all for seeing me through this.

Can you share about the neck/shoulder. What did they do? What state and any wisdom to share?

Hi madbomber....state is PA. I have herniations at the C5 thu the C7 with a pinchec nerve at the C7. Radiculopathy to the left. My lef thsoulder also happens to be the bad one. Had impingement syndrome with a 2 1/2 inch rotator cuff tear repaired. Frozen shoulder set in about 3 months post surgery. Shoulder never healed . It's been well over a year since surgery and now I have irreparable problems in there with not all ROM. Got a 9% rating on the cervical area and a 4% on my shoulder. You have to be close to dead in PA. I hope I helped. Anything else give me a yell. The only wisdom I have to offer is to figure out what eases your pain, do it and try not to ever do anything to aggravate it.

Way to go Cap. This is very good news. I'm hoping it will suit you in the settlement as well. Maybe do some catch up, and also do something for you. Get a new hair-do, get a make-up, buy some new clothes, and some of a little just for you.

Eat some Water-melon too.

Don't read the headline, read the article. I think you may find it very interesting. There was a Doctor that won the Noble Prize for Nitric-Oxide. Best way to get it, is to eat water-melon....Big Grin

That all sounds very familary to me. Left arm feels dead, down both arms into both hands. They thought the CTS surgey was going to solve everything but did nothing. I had never heard of tramatic CTS till I got it.
