If I am not active then I am what is called "stable". No pain or aggravation. If I attempt activities such as cleaning my home or dancing then it can result in inflammation or strain and contribute to the annoying muscle spasms I get in my back. It's possible I may still need treatment when I return from LA. If this is the case my current doctor will have to refer me out for yet another opinion. But he advises that I begin the settlement process with my attorney.
I have no clue what this kind of injury is worth monetarily. I hope it's a lot because I only get 60% of it (my attorney gets the rest). I would rather get no money at all and just have my doctors visits covered for the rest of my life. But apparently that's not how insurance companies work.
I do know one thing, if I get a settlement there are two things I will buy myself and the rest will be put away for future medical care. My futon is 12 years old. Going on 13 I think. I needs to be replaced badly. My computer freezes up, dumps memory (so annoying when it suddenly does that), won't open internet explorer on occasion, has a full hard drive, has so little memory that there isn't enough room in the buffer to copy my own CD's, the USB port doesn't work, and recently I have had to reboot to go online. If I get a settlement for this accident I will finally sleep in comfort and have a computer that works!!
So how much money is it worth when an aspiring dancer is at risk of pain every time she dances?
