Hello out there,
I have a herniated disc injury from March 2006.
I declined a steroid injection and have used the WC Insur. CO Dr. recommendations with no healing in sight. Many side effects have resulted from this injury and were not reported in the evaluation.
I've been receiving TTD for 7 mo.
I lost my job and insur. after I used the FMLA.
I just received and medical end result with an imapirment rating of 5%.
I have a work capacity that is now restricted to light duty.
I would like to seek a second opinion with a Dr. of my choice to do another impairment rating and possibly make it more adventageous for me with a better %.
What do you think my chances are?
Should I take the current offer and continue rehab since I haven't come close to recovering?
Thansk you so much for your help,
