Almost exactly 1 year ago I was in an accident. I suffered many injuries and was life flighted to a hospital to be treated for the worst which turned out to be a burst fracture of my L3. They ended up doing an emergency fusion surgery and, needless to say, I haven't been the same since. In August I had an FCE which determined that I can not lift any more than 15-20 lbs in an occasional setting, can not tolerate more than 3 minutes of forward flexed position and can not sit, stand or walk for more than 30 minutes at a time. I take a 25 and 12 mcg/hr fentanyl patches, 3600 mg of neurontin daily and 15 mg of mobic daily and yet I am still being deemed not disabled and have been denied ssdi. What else can I possibly do and how many more hoops must I possibly have to go through? We are currently barely surviving on my wife's salary as a cook and can't keep on this current path so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
