WHAT my dr. has told me to get out more to keep from being depressed, they denied my surgery which my doctor stated i now have a permanent injury due to the wc neglect. their 2nd opinion quack gave me a 7% wbd i am 56 years of age and have only done one type of job most of my life which i now cant go back too. I really need some input on this and befor i forget at the end of the second opinion letter the dr states if i dont seek agressive medical help for my injury that his mmi of 7% will stand. My ortho stated i am not at mmi but will never go back to my old type job again. Now can a pi take me inside a medical facility, can he release the tape without my consent to a doctor, and with what i have siad above are they going to cut off my wc checks which are already to small to live on please help
