A: A Montana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. This may be something more about medical issues than legal issues if there is a sound basis for your primary care physician to not clear you for surgery. At this point, reach out to workers' comp attorneys to discuss. Most offer free initial consults. Good luck
