In the meantime I went back to a different chiropractor (because the first one I feel he did everything wrong but that's a long story) and I'm still going to her. I had a really bad day today with the pain and she told me if I don't get better soon then I'm going to have "inevitable consequences" in the end, meaning surgery.
Surgery is the LAST thing I want. I'm only 28 years old. Oh, and she also decided to tell me that the surgery for this is $50k. Idk how true that is...its not like she knows what kind of insurance I have...but still. Idk how much longer I can keep going to her. She's $29 a visit and I go 3x a week. That's $350 a month. That's more than I pay for my house :(
Not only that, but ALL of the financial responsibility for my family of 4 is on me right now because df got hurt at work in Sept of 2011 and had to have surgery that went terribly wrong. He's still off work and fighting with workmans comp to get paid so he has ZERO income.
Idk what to do. We're barely scraping by. At least all of his medical bills are covered by workmans comp, but mine aren't. And I have to pay the chiropractor every time I go. She won't bill people. And now Christmas is right around the corner and we have 2 kids.
I'm just beside myself with what to do on this. I feel like I'm going to have to be in this much pain forever because I can't afford to get fixed. What would you do?? :'(
