    You mentioned in a prior post that you already have a lawyer. Your question should really be directed there. If you want to switch lawyers, then switch and ask the new lawyer. Either way, it sounds like you need to have someone representing you on this. Don't try to "go it yourself" based on what you read online anywhere. Your lawyer should contact WC and see if they will reinstate your benefits based on the IME. My guess is that they will not. In that case, your remedy is to request a hearing in front of a judge about the income benefits and also perhaps about a change of doctors.
