I had a fusion in aug of 07 and I am still in alot of pain. My x-rays look good but what I'm concerned about is my spinal cord or nerves being damaged. I can't seem to get through to the comp sergeon that I would like other tests besides x-rays. I have been dealing with this injury since oct of 06 and just would like to know what I should do? Get another opinion, Get a lawyer? I am having a hard time with my employer as well. They are giving me a hard time about my restrictions and cutting my hours to under 40 when there is other jobs I can do.
