occ lung disease in ca
#11
I recommend applying for California state disability if you have not done so already and if your doctor anticipates you will be out of work 12 months or longer due to your injury Social Security Disability.

Best to you.

You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.

thanks.. i am just glad they are getting me into a doctor sooner rather than later. my lungs are shot. i applied for ssdi almost 2 years ago but the wait for a hearing is horendously long. i was on sdi for a short period for other problems. but that was exhausted very quickly. I really thank you for the advice and welcome any words of wisdom. I am gonna see if i can file again for state DI.

so i went to my AME. Lasted 2 hours and they ran alot of test.(blood,urine,spirometer,EKG,ultrasound angiogram,and alot of questions)plus the usual weight, vitals, etc.... i am scheduled for follow up and im being referred to other kinds of specialist as well. I guess all i can do now is wait for everyone to get the report and see what it says. happy holidays to e1.

Follow up is appointment is normal. The AME office is not allowed to contact you, except for apt and testing.

Your attorney may have received a copy of the AME first report (if he wrote one). You can call your attorney and ask if they received it and if so if they can send you a copy. The AME may not have written a report yet (unknown).

Attorney's don't usually update clients or forward them reports. So it is normal what you are experiencing, in my opinion.
