On 2.21.2019 I had a posterior cervical
laminectomy with fusion. On day five while still in the hospital and unable to walk, my surgeon was yelling at me to get up and walk. He told me I was just seeking more drugs and if I didn’t get up he was going to stop my pain meds altogether. All I could do was cry! Finally they somehow got me on the ct table and come to find out, one of the screws fell out. I had to go back into surgery the following day and be recut open. I was supposed to be out of work six weeks, it turned into five months. I had a very good paying job but because of the constant pain, my hours were quickly reduced to six hours per day and I was a salaried employee. You know when that happens, everything you do at work is looked at with a fine tooth comb. I returned to work after my surgery on 7.6.2019 and was just terminated without ever receiving a verbal or written action plan on 10.23.2020. I worked there 8.5 years, a very busy primary care office as the administrator. Over the years I’ve won awards, our office was voted #1 out of 89 other offices, etc.
I have always been the giver to people in need and now I am the one in need. I saw my neurosurgeon via zoom yesterday and I was told I need more surgery. I have no income! If you can spare any amount ofmoney, one dollar, ten dollars, I would be so appreciative!
