I injured my lower back in 9/2009 and ended up having an L5 S1 Laminectomy for my herniated disc from Dr. Zoran Maric, who was given to me by WC.
I have since changed my doctor as Dr.Maric was blatantly omitting my post op complaints from his reports and eventually just told me the pain was all in my head. I would NOT recommend him at all!
I am still in PT and my back symptoms are returning and in some ways it is worse than before the surgery.
I just got a letter telling me that I am going to need to go to my first IME next week with Dr.Paul Palmer at Columbia Medical Consultants.
Anyway, that is where I am at right now, not sure if I will need more surgery or what to expect from the IME
Any input would be appreciated
