Hi, I was injured on 7/17/14. I have spondylolisthesis ,grade 1 and four herniated disk, L5-s1 has 2 cracks in that vetabrea and is bone on bone.I have seen a spine surgeon and he want to do surgery to get me back to edl.I have lower pain in my back constantly with flare ups.I have no leg pain yet. Ive managed all the pain with just IB 800,will not take narcotics unless I'm on my knee's. Before all this happened I had put in a bunch of job applications with NY state. Im currently a bricklayer and currently out of work due to my back, well I got offered a job driving plow truck for the state and don't know if i should take the job and try to get some time in before i go out for surgery, or play it safe and not risk further injury. The down fall to the job is full time,temporary,so come spring if their is no availability i can get laid off. Im also a candidate for another state job at a prison doing maintenance for the state. I know these jobs are really hard to come bye. I just don't know what to do. Play it safe or try and better my future. Im currently on workman's comp for now. Im 32 yrs old and not sure what direction to head in. Thanks for any input.
