My claims Rep requested a supplemental report from the QME to clarify issues. One of these issues were work restrictions. He then wrote back this report.
Specific activities which increase her complaints are: sitting, standing,pushing,pulling,bending,stooping,lifting, forceful grasping,pinching,fine manipulative activities,hand and wrist twisting. The patient should be limited to sitting no more than 1 hour,standing for 1 hour, and walking for 40 min in an eight-hour period. Repetivive pushing,pulling,bending,stooping,lifting,grasping, pinching,hand and wrist twisting, should be limited to 15 min every 2 hours.
I was previously rated 53% before this supplementation was received and 53% after. I am still not for sure what these restrictions will allow me to do in the way of work and I do not want to work out of my restriction quidelines.
As I have said in other conversation in the forum I have recently obtained a Real Estate License and was hopeing to be able to get into the loan end of it then I will work from home so I can have control of my time. I just don't want to mess up my settlement by not doing the right thing.
