    It's different for everyone. It can vary from total disability to very little.

    What's your point.

    I'm asking people to give at least some kind of answer.

    I mean, i said for the lumbar area.
    I'll add to it by saying 1 fusion minimum, not more then two fusions.
    You've been given a PPD (permanent partial disability rating) for your injury.

    I'm asking the kind folks what their Impairment Rating % is, as a result of these combination of facts?

    If you only want to add to the general bull____ of "It's on a case by case basis" or "Every case is different", then just cut your keyboard cable and STFU...

    There is no set answer to your question. There are many variables involved including the state you live in, the rating guide that is utilized and the level of your surgery. Most ratings are based on the limitation of motion and this can be different for every person. There is no average rating.

    I'd give you the answer and I have the AMA guides 5th edition right here in front of me. THe correct is answer is - it depends. So why don't you take your own advice?

    where are all the original posters from before this group changed? I am seeing lots of unregistered folks, but dont recognize the style of many of the older posters here. This is very sad. have you all gone to some new forum, if so, please post where, so those of us who are serious about being helpful and getting help can do so. so many here now are just posting terribly mean comments and such,
    isnt there a rule about cussing here, even in shorthand????????
