Have told family of situation, and they were very upset about it. They are all big enough to take care of themselves, 27 and 19 plus hubby is 60.
Doctor said I had to be complete bedrest and off feet for at least three months or more.
Looks like I will be trying to get a cleaning person to come in and help out around here.
If I don't, he threatened to put me into a nursing home to make sure I did nothing.
As I said, I am not looking forward to any of this, but I would love just to have one day pain free.
Since this was mostly caused by car accident for me, the guy who hit me does have insurance, and his company is NOT happy either.
Anyone have any idea about cost for permanent injury that they have to pay for??
I was told to get a lawyer by doctor, but don't have any idea of who to think of getting.
I live in Indpls. Indiana, and of course, there are plenty on tv and in the phone book, but I have had no experience with them.
I would be happy for them to just get all my bills paid for. Already owe close to $2,000 for Podiatrist and then if he does surgery, I have no idea what the rest of it will be.
The insoles cost me out of my pocket now $150. My health insurance does not cover this expense.
Can you get the other insurance to pay any of claim before everything is settled??
Appreciate any help.
Please think carefully about surgery, and maybe rethink. If you read the posts on this board, you will find many people who were not helped by surgery. You will also find lots of alternatives available less invasive and dramatic (and more reversible) than surgery. Maybe a stupid question -- but if you are having custom insoles or orthotics made that will finished around Jan. 1, don't you think it's premature for your doctor to schedule surgery so soon after the New Year? Anyway, good luck, but I do hope you think real carefully about surgery.
