HELP!!! I have been off work for 10 months enduring constant pain after herniations abutting nerves with Left leg weakness, sciatica and much more. I have only had about 5 weeks of Physical Therapy in that time but then WC doctor says I am ready to go back to a physical job lifting up to and over 100 lbs 70% of my day. At this point I can hardly push a cart through WalMart without pain. Attorney says if WC says I have met MMI they are the final say. If I go back to work and can't do it(which I have no doubt) what will happen then as far as another claim, payments, etc? How can they go by what a doctor paid by WC says?
