I suffered a work comp accident early in the year and just recently was my first day back to work. Until work, I was on temporary total disability. State is California. On the first day back to work I could not stand the pain in my lower back and neck and had requested to go home for the rest of the day.
I can not make it through even a half day of work with just the pain meds alone. After 1-2 hours, I am suffering and have to lay down with the heat pad or ice.
What can be done and what can I expect with work comp?
I would really appreciate anyone who has been through something similar.
