Hello to everybody I am under workcover payments for 1 year and 4 months now. I have been injured working as a cleaner to my back. MRI shows that I have spinal canal stenosis. My symptoms are a severe pain in my left side back and leg especially when the weather is cold & wet. I am unable to do anything without pain.since my accident. I have seen physiotherapist & osteopath but nothing changed. My last hope was a surgery but the orthopedic surgeon told me that if I do it, it will help with my leg pain but it can damage the back more.so I decided not to do it since it is the back I concern more because the back is that I have pain more. I am afraid that this problem is going to follow me for the rest of my life. So far I have no problem with weekly payments as the insurance company doctors admit that I have a problem. My question is, if someone knows of previous similar cases, what is going to happen next and how will end this story for me as the payments are going to stop in 14 months? Sorry about my English. I lived most of my life in a non-English speaking country. I hope you understand my question. Thank you all.
