    DDD. One of their "favorites". Uhmmm.

    IF it is your choice of doctors' who is telling you this, seems that you may have a bit of a "situation" here.

    Has he/she performed any diagnostic testing to possibly rule OUT other factors? IE; MRI, Cat Scan or X-Rays?

    A second opinion from a reputable Surgeon is highly suggested! Either an OSS or preferably, a Neurosurgeon.

    Have you consulted with, or retained a Lawyer specializing in Workers Compensation?

    Whatever YOUR decision... Make it the best one you can.

    Good Luck!

    I would not let the doctor's speculation stop you from filing a claim or giving workers comp a chance to rule on it. The facts in each case are different. For more information on how and what to file you can contact
