Gonn’a start planning my trip back to the States for back surgery. Try to set it up for late September or early October – gott’a stay within the 5 yr time period of the actual accident injury date. Ever since I’ve been here my back has been getting worse. I have tried to use exercise and medication to keep the injury from flaring up, but hasn’t worked. I didn’t want to believe what I was told by the back Surgeon, the first one I went to for the Workman’s Comp injury. He told me that, in his judgement, surgery would most probably be needed and it seems that he was right.
I am going to call him and have him start the process to do what is needed. He will have to check with Liberty Ins – that is the Ins. company that under-wrote for Ikon Workmans Comp policy, before he can actually start. But this should be sufficient time to get approval to operate.
Don’t really want to do it – I have heard bad things about back surgery gone wrong – not being able to get it up being the most glaring – bad slice and there she goes. But I really don’t see any alternative.
