Hello to all. I have a question regarding my FCE and what Dr changed from the results of FCE. First off I have had for the better part of 3yrs low back pain w/ radiating pain down the back of my left leg. I gone through all conservative treatments shots predisone and PT, also have had a PDD on L4-5 L5-S1 to no avail. I sought from PM dr surgical options, 1st was bi-level fusion what I won't do because no better odds then 50/50 it will decrease pain and then 2nd was from neuro how said in the begging I had a healthy spine just mild bulges and no sciatic nerve compression. So off to FCE and I was able to do what they asked was in pain but sucked it up and did it. According to the FCE my Dr said that the test said I could lift up to 50lbs but never picked up n e thing but a empty milk crate, but the Dr disagreed w/ FCE and put a restriction of no more then 20lbs no ladder climbing above 3 steps(part of job) and gave me a RTW notice even though I cant return because of a)been out past company policy of 180days and 2)restrictions put on me. So what is my MMI based on Dr or FCE? ho has the final say? Ever since FCE been in alot of pain and I think I have reherniated 1 of my discs but have been denied any visits to PM DR because he agrees w/ FCE and deems me MMI. Any thoughts or advice from n e 1 would be greatly appreciated? I do have an attorney but I dunno. Thanks and sorry for the rambling.
