I broke my leg, right fibula spiral fracture on Oct. 4, 2012. I was seeing an orthopedic surgen (paying cash) who told me I needed “pins and a plate” to fix it correctly. He was honest and told me it was very expensive, I went and got Medecal. The only doctor I could see was also an “ortho”. He did an x-ray where I could still see the bone protruding, displaced, and shadowed where it should have been solid. (Nov. 18) He then gave me a back to work order, told me I would be fine by Dec. 1. I waited until May to find a job that does not require alot of walking (I was a waitress before)Now I work at a desk making 1/5 of the money I am used to. BUT the point is that I’m in PAIN…. If I walk more than a block or so in a day, I feel as though my leg is rebroken all over again. I need help finding an ortho in my area who takes my new insurance (iehp) My PCP saw my latest x-rays and said “you definently need to see an orthopedic surgen, Ill call you with a referral.
He never did!Now im looking for a new pcp …..yadayadayada… Suggestions or help would be great! thank you, Lorie Jean
