I had surgery in August is was to figure out why I was still in so much pain. Come to find out I had a bone spur and some cartilage that was majorly damaged....well when the WC received the note in regards to my surgery they put my claim on hold because it mentioned the screws that are in my ankle from a prior injury. Anyways since then I developed this nasty and when I mean nasty infection I was in the hospital for 10 after another surgery to try and clean my ankle out....I have been home with a PIC Line since the 10th and I am on IV antibiotics and it will keep going for another 3-5 weeks. My WBC are not coming up as quickly as the ID Dr would like. My husband has been on the WC company about reinstating my status and they keep giving the run around....whats new with that right? The problem comes I have no income now and haven't worked since August 24. Should I get my lawyer involved? I don't know what to do, I took a medical leave from work for 30-60 days because that is what work advised me to do so I wouldn't loss my light duty job. But my problem comes down too what do I do? I feel like I am screwed and this is going to be something I need to deal with.
