Ok my wife has been posting, my turn. I don't think she should accept offer of light duty I am worried she will force herself through the pain (cause she thinks she so tough)ending up worse or even fall and hurt herself more. she takes percocet and muscle relaxers and still has pain, trouble walking, and sitting down I will transport her both ways since i will not let her drive on meds.. I just don't get how the IME says light duty, sitting is a killer for more then 20 minutes then she must lay down. At home she lays down at least 1 to 2hrs. for every 15/20 minutes up. Plus she is crying all the time I am confused about what to do.
She says she will accept light duty offer-Ok but what happens when she is at work and no longer can move? No place to lay down...WHAT THEN?
She told work all this but they only go by what the IME says-regardless of treating dr. saying she needs surgery to get better.
She does not want to be fired and keeps saying if she has to, will go out on FMLA to save her job but now with the light duty she cant go out on FMLA.
I just want her safe!! PLEASE ANY HELP
