I previously posted about being diagnosed with Pirformis Syndrome.
My question is this: I was being treated for a back injury by an Orthopediac. After PT, MRI's CT scans, EMG's Epidural injections he imforms me that the problem with my hip/leg is not being caused from my back and he was going to inform W/C that he could not warrant the injury as being job related. When I told him that the pain was real his reply was " If everyone who had leg pain was given disablity, the whole state of Rhode Island would be disabled." I was mortified!!!
He never even looked at any other possibilities as the cause of the pain.
Would something like this be considered mal-practice seeing as the Neurosurgeon diagnosed the problem? I am just curious about this. I feel like I wasted 9 months of being treating for the wrong thing and have to start treatment all over again, including probable surgery.
Any help would be appreciated.
