Well, I tried going in this morning to see if I could get a cortisone shot. Nope - gotta wait until I'm cleared through worker's comp.
According to the paperwork I got from SAIF, it can take up to 90 days to process my claim. Huh?
However, in the packet I got in the mail today, it also says you can get treated for pain management in the interim.
So I'm going back on Monday to the doctor I saw on the first of the month. I'll let him know the pain meds he prescribed are not doing enough, and can I please have a cortisone shot.
At least we don't have kids at school any more. We're just packing up the room now. Don't worry, my arm is in a sling & I'm not lifting anything.
