funny vicki, i'm having to have metal allergy testing to prove to aetna that i CAN'T have an adr... i'm petrified of the metal and would rather have a fusion. if the testing is ok i'll reconsider but... still scared b/c i'm very atopic.

fwiw, the insurance i have is exactly what you've been told to get. have had no problems getting what i need covered including tens unit, epidurals, MRI's. no limit on PT, which is the main reason i've kept is despite the cost. i'm still under my employer's COBRA - am now part time.
US non-spine MD - laid up no more!!!
had recurrent annular tear L5/S1, failed everything
M6L done 10/19/11 w/ Dr Clavel getting back to my old self more and more every week! if my PM box is full
