I realize this is a crazy question, but does anybody have any idea what it means when a lawyer tells you your medical records are regurgitating ? Could it have anything to do with injuries from the past ? Or more like repeated records of my present injuries ? I am just stuck on this comment from him. Any ideas would be appreciated.....Thank you, horsefly

Hey Horsefly

I work in health care, and I have never heard of this term, but I'll take a guess. If your chart (s) have been thinned over the past 5 years, the older notes may have been scanned and saved into an archive. 5 years is the standard time to keep medical records.

Regurgitation means to bring forth or cast up? So my guess is that he meant retrieve the records, and sometimes that takes a while, locating the disc, file, and printing them off.

Anyway, that's my guess.

To make myself clearer, I have been seeing doctors for 2 years and have stacks of records. My old injuries were a very long time ago. The injuries are not in the same place. I am asking this question because I wonder if they are trying to link the old and new together. Thank you again, horsefly

Sometimes I have heard people use the term regurgitate to mean just repeating what has already been said.

For example the students regurgitated the information provided in the book for their research papers. meaning that they just took the info in the book and repeated it in the paper without adding anything to it or drawing conclusions or sythisizing ideas based on the information. IN other words they just took in the info and then spit it up at you again the same as it was before. Another way to say it would be "the students parroted the information" meaning that they just repeated it back to you like a parrot does.

So in this case could it be that they are repeating the same info from the previous injury??? not sure- but you could ask for clarification on what he meant by that comment.

Thank you Beevee , Yoyr information has helped because I wondered about how far they keep records and how they obtain them. I am guessing and hoping that my last 2years of medical recorders are repeat and repeat information. I am in the Worker's Comp hell and I have no lawyer for myself so I am flying by the seat of my pants... I am also hoping he doesn't try to bring a few carwrecks I have had 15 or more years to complicate things......Thank you so much for your thoughts , Any ideas help, horsefly

chelonia mydas , After I googled it I saw this kind of information. That is what I hope he meant.....My records are repetitive about this last injury....I am not able to call back , he said he will be sending me copies of his records on me. I have been stumped by this word, but It is starting to make a little sense.....Thank you much, horsefly

ask the lawyer who said it what it means. Get it straight from the horse's mouth. just tell him you were unclear on what he meant.

Thank you Glitter, I don't think this lawyer is going to help me out much because is is on the opposite side....But I think I have a handle on my question here and I would like to thank everyone for the ideas....horsefly
