I'm going stir crazy. My lower back injury and symptoms are definate. My pain is tolerable as long as I don't agitate it too much. The few weeks of rest while on WC has certainly reduced the pain. Dr. has already said to expect, at the very least, several more weeks of WC. Dr. says that the potential of further agitation at work is too great since many of the activities at my work enviornment and my expectations are too great and most certainly will agitate the symptoms.
My spouse has been required to travel out of town and be at a seminar for business. This happens to be an opportunity for me to relax and chill at the hotel/resort for a few days.
Will the Dr. allow me to travel for this while on WC?
Is it better to miss an appointment and reschedule or be upfront and explain the situation to the DR. and hope for consideration to travel and leave a little extra time in between appointments?
