I just wanted to let everyone know that I am not out there trying to get money out of the government. To give you more background on my situation, because people are assuming I had the surgery and I expect to get paid immediately, I have been dealing with this congenital illness of scoliosis since I was 13 years old, which equals 15 years. This is not something that popped up overnight. I have been thru the ringer - not only have had surgery but was in a body brace 23 hours a day for two years, numerous times to the ortho over the past 15 years. I am dissapointed because all I was asking about were suggestions about how I can go about this and if it was worth it. I did not ask about anyones weight or race, nor posted my own stats. I have other issues than this and believe that I have a legitimate claim. I have not dealt with this recently, but for at least 15 years. Everyone IS entitled to their opinion but I cannot believe what some people have said. I have had chronic pain BEFORE and AFTER this surgery and I am not trying to rip anyone off. I would definately pursue and enjoy going back to work if I felt that I had the ability to work even at least part time. I do not enjoy the fact that this has happened to me. I just had questions about this and was hoping that anyone who had been thru it themselves had any information that I was missing. I will be contacting an attorney about this and will no longer post a question like this that was so personal to me. Sorry for everyone who had a supportive answer, I am not trying to be rude by posting this, but just wanted to explain myself in a little more detail. To those thinking that I am trying to rip the government off, try having a condition for 15 years......Thanks.
