I had a back fusion on L5-S1 and been off work almost 2 years now. I was off work over a year before I had surgery. Surgery all went well. I had an FCE the other day and don't know the results yet but the guy giving the test stated to me he was giving me a medium rating. What does that mean for me? Also, My Dr. already told me I would not be able to return working on ambulance or fire department any longer. Now my job just all the sudden fired me and I found out when I went to get my meds filled for other medical reasons and my insurance denied the claim for meds. My job has not contacted me in any way but anyways. My main questionis.. I have an attorney and he is very good!! We have talked about settleing my case BUT I am lost on what is fair in MY own opinion I have a number but not sure if I am going in right direction with the amount. Now about the Medium rating what exactly does that mean? and other question is....Is there a pain and suffering fee in Louisiana because the WC people ave been nothing but rude and not doing all I think they should I.E. after my surgery 8 months ago I still have not had my pain pills or antibiotics filled I keep getting told it is pending approval. So, with all that I libed in pain till I healed to where I am now. Also, what about my job firing me can they do that id I am still on WC? thanks for any advice i can get...... I am looking at a differnet amount of money than my attorney thins i may get we are off from each other about 10-12,000 $$ do i follow what he says or demand what i think i deserve?
