Hello my name is Tamara. I am 48 years old. I am happily married. I have a 16 year old step daughter who is a sophomore and twin 21 year old step sons who are in college. I am disabled. With my husband’s pay we just get by paying the necessities
My medical has been going down hill for the last 10 years. It now has gotten to the point that I am pretty much in constant pain. I have chronic pain in my neck and back. I have a Nerve Stimulator in my lower back and I have had 2 disk replaced in my neck. I have been diagnosed with the following: Degeneration of lumbar or lumbosacral intervertebral disc, Sacroiliac inflammation, Degenerative arthritis of lumbar spine, Cervical impingement C7, Cervical Spondylitis, Cervical disk foraminal narrowing at several C6-7, C4-6, C5-6, Fibromylagia, Mixed Connective Tissue, Disorder, SLE Lupus, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, HNP Cervical, Abnormal Posture, PES Planus, Plantar Fascitis both feet, Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, Cervical Spondylosis, Degenerative Disc Disorder, Carpal tunnel Syndrome bilateral, Hypertension, Degenerative Back Disorder, Sacroiliac Joint Pain, Obstructive Sleep Apnea,
I need help with the following:
Then On May 30, 2019, I had to have a Carpal Tunnel Surgery on my left hand at the JPS Main Hospital. The CoPay I owe them is $250.00.
I currently need to eye exam and new glasses as I can tell my prescription has changed and my glasses are broken. That will be roughly $220.
On August 20, 2019, I will be having Nerve Injection, on my neck at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound TX. The CoPay is $250 due on day of procedure. I have asked for help from the hospital or to be allowed to pay it out but they denied the request causing it to be postponed already twice already. Due to the pain I have to have this done now.
In October On the 4th ( which happens to be my birthday) I will be having Corrective Carpal Tunnel Surgery (A 2nd Surgery) on my right hand at the Main JPS Hospital. The CoPay is $250.00 due on day of procedure.
Then on November 26, 2019, (or sooner if I get the CoPay quicker) I am scheduled to have Epidural Shots to the spine in my lower back at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound TX. The CoPay for this procedure which I have to pay them on the day of the procedure is $250.
I also need to have Sacroiliac Joint Shots both sides as soon as I can at Texas Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound TX. The CoPay for this procedure which I have to pay them on the day of the procedure is $250 each side being a single procedure These just have not been scheduled.
Thank you for your time.
