Neil...good news for you!  Now it's full speed ahead...well, okay maybe just baby steps, but the right direction for sure.
I am so glad I don't have to fight with an insurer on top of everything!!!

Neil:

I am so happy for you!! I am still fighting my WC over further treatment. They actually had the nerve to say that any patient can find a doctor who is willing to do surgery, but that doesn't mean it's "necessary and reasonable." As if, after all I've been through, I'd want to have surgery that is unnecessary and unreasonable, especially with some surgeon I found just because he'd be willing to do it! How infuriating!

Hope everything goes well with you.
