    Default Having a Hard Time at Work

    Was placed at MMI after a double cervical fusion. Was hoping for a better outcome after surgery. Still experiencing alot of neck and arm pain while doing my job (truck driver). Contacted the Neurosurgen, but he said there was nothing more he could do. What can i do? Never had a FCE done, no permanent restrictions. Any advise or help would be appreciated.

    If there are restrictions on your daily activities, those would come from your treating physician, if that is the surgeon, that's the Dr would would do it.
    FCE isn't required, it's a tool used to determine your abilities to perform the basic functions of your job.

    WC is medical care provided to a stable condition or MMI. That may not be pre injury condition.
    Pain is not generally enough reason to continue to be paid wage loss.

    No permanent restrictions... then your ER is not going to have to address modifications to your job, or reasonable accommodation.
    You could discuss a FCE with your attorney. May or may not make any difference.
