I'm worried and need some help. I just found out work comp gave me a case worker. Now this case worker is setting up an independent medical exam. I don't like this. I've heard all the bad stuff. She has read all my files and knows I still need a disc fusion. She wants me to find a new doc completely. I've expressed all my concerns to her. What does this mean for my work comp case and does this affect a possible settlement in any way?
Left side MicroD l5-s1 2/7/13. Re herniated immediately
Revision bilateral MicroD and posterior lumbar decompression 9/9/13. Failed. L5-S1 fusion on 3/6/14.
