wc and summer job - mhl - 04-13-2010

i suffered a wc injury 12/28/09. i was on light duty at that job and working my regular job all winter. i am now at full duty at the wc job, but that job is ending for the season. my last dr visit said i had not reached full recovery and impairment was undetermined. what do i have to tell my summer employer about the wc claim.

also i have hardware in my leg that i am told can be removed if it bothers me. who decides if it bothers me enough to be covered by wc, and how long do i have to decide if i want it out. i am in NH.

i am also looking for info on having a plate and screws on my fibula and running and stress riser fractures.

like to say hi and welcome to the forum...you decide if it bothers you and if you want it removed..i had a 2 level fusion lumbar last year and was still in lots of pain long after the surgery and told my surgeon and he removed the hardware its still pretty recent and im still in a lil pain from the removal but all is better..but you decide if its removed if your in pain make sure you tell your dr so he can do what he needs to do to get you better and back to work...

you have to stay within your medical restrictions; so let your employer know what they are.
medical websites like webmd and merck can offer better medical information then an insurance site.

You have run 7 and biked 16 miles in 3 days, but dr. says you aren't fully recovered???? Lucky you! I haven't been able to do more than very short walking in 7 years.

my doc told me i can do things but will not be able to because my leg will get tired, have appt coming up afraid he will tell me i have stress fractures and arthritis, and put more limits on me, my ankle is still swollen a little, but really does not bother me as far as what i want to do, have no after effects of running being on my feet etc, but am terrified of doctor and wc since they have the power not me,i feel comfortable doing what i am doing

If I could run 7 and bike 16 in 3 days, I would fill like a new man. I have not walked anywhere even near a half mile in 10 years now. I do hope u get better and do even more in 3 days.
