dr says he has to send me back to work with no restrictions??
The idea is so you can go take a job that YOU know is within your ability WITHOUT the need to explain your permanent restrictions which, as you know, will prevent you from being hired. There is always some degree of permanent pain expected after fusion surgery as the surgery itself is not designed to alleviate back pain. Those without are the lucky ones.

From a study of work outcomes after spinal fusion surgery:

" Only workers compensation coverage and involvement with litigation were associated with a less successful work outcome at 2 years. Despite a negative association, 68% of patients with workers compensation coverage did return to work and 48% had an ultimately successful return to work at 2 years."
