Q: Im on sedentary work and my WC stopped. If Im stuck like this what happens? Full abdominal reconstruction. IME next.
I never received change of status other than the original claim acceptance. I have started to work at non profit for 2 weeks and have not been paid. Ive seen a second Dr by Comp Ins request last week and Scheduled for an IME in another week. Its going on six months since surgery. Surgeon said this was such a major surgery I can never have this repaired ever again. Im still in pain all the time even not doing anything. I dont know what to expect? Dont feel that anything has gotten any better for the last 2 or 3 months.
A: Good morning, your question came in late last night. I am confused about your case history, the part about having seen as second insurance doctor last week and scheduled for another insurance examination next week. I can review the claim with you, at no cost, so you have a better understanding what is likely to happen. I would also like to know if your injury was a hernia and, if yes, what location and what repair. There are very special rules for hernia injuries, depending on the type, and if that was not your injury it will make a big difference in what benefits are available to you. You can reach me at 602-540-6366 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, please contact me at your convenience
