A: Based on the limited details here, it isn't clear why you are still being held subsequent to your urologist lifting your restrictions. It's possible information is missing in terms of their policy, and that your family could need to look further into reasons why you are still being limited in the absence of medical restrictions. If your family is not provided with a clear and reasonable explanation, they could consult with a Minnesota attorney to look further into the matter. Good luck.
