I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to this one. I've worked at my job for almost 6 years now. I had a STD policy which paid out this past January for the three weeks I was out for surgery. I have a LTD policy as well. I would be eligible for another FMLA at the end of June.
At 4 months post-op many of my original symtoms have come back and brought with them some friends. I'm waiting for another CT scan in 3 weeks and will see the surgeon after that. I am guessing that at the least I reherniated and possibly have problems from the pedicle fracture.
My question is what happens if I get laid off before I find out what is going on? Does the STD continue since I had an existing condition? I'm surviving through work but part of me is nervous about the future. Like all companies mine is going through some upheavals. While I don't expect anything immediately you never know.
