My injury happened months ago. I followed all protacal to report it. Saw WC doc. Went to PT, finally had MRI, continue PT, ended up having surgery 6 months after injury. Relieved the problem. Was released to go back to work at my office job with limited restricteictions that did not interfere with my job.
I was told no. Would have to wait another month until I saw the doc again. My FMLA is ticking a way. My PT said I was doing amazing, they saw no reason I could not return back to work with NO restrictions.
My case manager says no way, not going to happen. You must wait to see doc to have restrictions released.
The next day my PT therapist tested me on "all the test that were sent to her" They are NOT in my job description at all.
I did them and passed them anyway.
My case manager got a push to set up my appointment which is to happen this coming Mon.
If they don't allow me then, I am running out of time and options!
I WANT TO WORK BUT I AM NOT ALLOWED TO.
