Not sure I’d call that “fixed.” I think I will refuse back surgery if any doctor of mine ever suggests it.
I’m so sorry to hear what you went through. I’ve known others who had back surgery and did not do well, but your saga is especially bad. I wish you the best in overcoming the poor results. Did anything improve?
Oh dear. Hope you’re well now and stay that way.
Good that you’re OK so far. BTW, the only way I would be able to get a tan would be if all my freckles blended together.
Absolutely right. There wasn’t any sunblock until I went to college in the mid-70s, and then SPF 8 was considered a total block. Nobody said anything about sunburn causing cancer. I tried to avoid it simply because it hurt. But I didn’t do a great job and got a melanoma about 10 years ago.
But they still haven’t processed the amended return.
The problem wasn’t our regular return, which we filed electronically, but an amended return caused by an item in my favor, which I wasn’t expecting, from my deceased mother’s final tax return. In May 2020, amended returns could only be mailed in.
True, but a lot of that is because of world-wide supply chain problems. The IRS should be fixable within this country. And you’re supposed to get your sofa in 5 months, while I’ve been waiting over a year. Ugh.
They got behind in the spring/summer of 2020, when I’ve heard that they did have to halt manual processing for a while. What bugs me is that they’re not being honest on their website, which continues to show that amended returns can take “up to 16 weeks,” and that they tell me on the phone that someone will contact me within 30 days and no one does. They could at least come clean about how long it’s going to take them to process paper and amended returns.
