I had AC surgery in Jan 2007. I now havew the same pain as I did before surgery. The Dr. keeps putting me off and spreading my appoinments 2 to 3 weeks apart. he , in my opinion put me back to work too soon, and has not runany more X-RAYS or MRIS. They have now cut my pain medicine from 40 pills a week to 30 a month. Its almost like they are calling me a liar for my pain. I have asked for a second opinion from another Dr, and could not beliebe the RED TAPE involved. They do know that I am suffering financil wise, and I believe they are trying to get me to give in. I have an attorney, but seems they are just after the "BIG" check, which i understand isnt going top be that much anyway.
Why dosent an employee have the right to a second opinion of his choice in this case, without all the BS.
