Hi all I have a question that I am worrying about so any help would be really appreciated. I am a 54 year old woman that has worked for the same company as a press operator for 35 years. I had a laminectomy and fusion done on the l5 s1 region last October. The screw loosened and I had to have the whole thing taken out and redone in Jan. Second surgery was much longer. This has left me with chronic pain and also with that nerve pain. My ct myelogram shows a mass at the l5s1 nerve root of bone and scar tissue. I have three doctors all saying the same thing. I applied for SSDI in June I talked to my medical examiner today and she said she reached a decision but couldn't tell me but that I could find out towards the end of this week by calling the local branchs office. While she had me on the phone and after she said she had already made her decision she said she had a note on her desk to ask me if "I was working" I said no and that I hadn't in a year and she said nothing. Isn't that so weird? So now I am thinking that why would she ask me that if she thinks I am able to work. I don't know. Maybe I am reading too much into it but I just thought it was strange. So I would like to hear from others what they think and if this is something I am just overreacting to.
