Good Morning....I also know how heavy the financial end of this issue can be. I too was out of work for 4.5 months last year to only just start to get on my feet when Im hit again with the decision to operate, and with a longer recovery already expected! It stinks ! Im nervous but I can not leave a quality of life in this condition. I am a single parent with a home of my own. I work in the medical field 12-15 hour shifts with no light duty. My fears are valid just as yours are but if I don't correct this issue I may never recover the damages.
Money comes and goes but your health doesn't. You have a lot of thinking to do. Right now I am trying to prepare myself for the upcoming disability. There is no easy way. Trust me I tried to talk myself into believing I could survive like this...but I cant ! You have to take one day at a time and see where your willing to live with the outcome of your decision. There is no easy answer and a ton of factors go into this ! Please continue to share your thoughts !
