Points: 396 Questions about physical exam for SSD
I've began my "jump through the hoop" scenario with SSD about 130 days ago, and just received notice 2 days ago about my "Medical Doctor examination" with SS doctor? I had a 3 level lumbar fusion almost 2 years ago and am unable to work due to constant pain sitting, standing, twisting, lifting, etc... I have accepted my physical situation as depressing as it is.
I have a lot of questions on the physician they are sending me to first. Is this going to be like work/comp docs? I sure hope not!! That was the most aweful thing I've ever been through. I swear those idiots are brainwashed, and don't look at each individual AS an individual. I think anyone on here that has a work related injury knows what I'm talking about. Do they examine us like "real" physicians, or are they brainwashed also to say, "Oh she's fine, nothings wrong"? Or do they give their TRUE REAL findings back to SS?
Also, is it a good situation that they are sending me to one of their docs to be examined? Am I one step closer to this being approved?
