I have struggled with this compound open tib fib fracture for five freaking years. I have been laying on the couch for almost a month and will be returning to work on Monday. I take only one perc a day. I started PT last week which only makes it hurt more! Workers comp has STILL not paid me enough money for me to pay my bills on June 1st. I got a letter today that my contact person at workers comp has changed. I had all I could do to not dance around the house. I have struggled with a problem with this woman at EVERY turn. Waste of space. Maybe this will make things easier. I know I am not ready to go back to work but I can't stay home another moment.
