Re: Help I Need Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm glad you were able to get some answers today - what a relief for you! I hope the road in the next few months goes more smoothly for you.
Here's a thread of mine explaining what I have been through recently: [url]http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=630412[/url]
I started having severe sciatica down my left leg this last April, and had 2 surgeries in August after exhausting all non-surgical options. I don't know for sure what caused my herniated disc, but I was doing some lifting for both work and at home prior to having the sciatic pain. I am fortunate that I only have the L4-L5 level in my back causing problems, but it only takes one level to cause problems! After surgery I still can't sit at a 90 degree angle without severe sciatic pain, so I am hoping for a lot more improvement as I heal.
LTD insurance is long-term disability insurance. I am fortunate that my employer offers this to employees, and I just got the paperwork back from my surgeon today approving my disability insurance. I just hope the process goes smoothly.
