Advice please

I'm currently out of work on a recurring injury from 2009. I have a dr appt next week. I have a lawyer who says a have a excellent case for disabilty and early retirement due to injury from my job. I feel as though I can no longer to my job due to the pain I'm in. My question is should just come and tell my dr this? How should I approach the situation I don't want to seem like I just want to get out of working. Also in the I received ssd for two years from this injury but I felt I was able to work, I returned. But now I think otherwise. Advice please.

    I too had a Disability Attorney.
    Although our situations are different, I would suggest letting your attorney be your guide.

    For me, he told me when and what to do. Gave me the forms for the doctors when he wanted me to start that part in the process.
    The lawyer does his thing and you don't want to jump ahead of attorney's timing.

    That is my opinion...as, of course, I'm not an attorney. :)
