Re: Repetitive Stress Injury Flare Up but Still Must Work
Then you'll probably end up with nothing.
I do not have an attorney because I want to keep all of any payment I get offered.
Complaints of pain alone will not support your claim, it must be supported with objective medical evidence.
Unless you can support your complaints of pain with objective medical evidence, they will find you MMI and close this claim out.
Myths and Truths about carpal tunnel syndrome
Myth: It takes a long time to recover from surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. Truth: The bandage that covers the stitches after surgery can be removed in a few days. The hand can then be used for light activities. Making a fist is encouraged. Full range of finger motion and symptom relief is usually seen within 2 weeks after stitches have been removed. Some surgeons prefer to splint the wrist for 2 weeks or so after surgery. You can usually return to most activities by 6 weeks. Return to work depends on many factors, such as type of work, how much control you have over your work, and workplace equipment.
