I had an ALIF and percutaneous screw and rod fixation July 22, 2011. Was told to limit sitting from 15-20 min , 3 times a day and increase as tolerated. I am a CPA and all my work is done at a desktop comp and requires long term sitting. Impossible to start a year end accounting work and then prepare tax returns in such short intervals. You start on the file , work for 20 min, and then when you go back you have to start all over to see where you left off and get many questions answered, and then start all over again. When I work, I sit for hours until my work is in good form, and check entries the next day and then prepare tax returns. Do you think based on doctors orders that I would be a good candidate to qualify for short term disability? I have been contributing to FICA etc for in excess of 30 years and have never asked for a dime. Anyone out there who is knowledgable on this topic and can give me some good advice.
Am I interested in any and all suggestions on this topic and appreciate you taking the time to help me out. Thanks in advance.
