I recently posted my story in another forum but with new developments I think this may be more appropriate. After 2 months of extreme pain and no relief, my specfialist scheduled surgery for December 1. I thought relief was in sight, but....
Today I was informed, in writing, that my position is a full-time position and they have no part-time positions available. They expect me to be there from today forward.
If I go to have the surgery, they will hire someone to take my position while I'm gone and "reassess" the situation when I return.
This is not a work related injury. I began the position on June 1 and am still in my probationary period. I work as a chemical dependeny social worker (carrying duel licensure) for a county agency.
