Scheduled for my IME...
I injured my back in the state of oregon working at my state job. The IC called yesterday and told me I needed to see an independent medical doctor in a little over 30 days. This doctor is in Portland, 45 minutes away from the IC. I am however, 6 hours away. They gave me the option to drive or they would fly me in and put me up in the hotel. My problem is....I hurt my SI joint and I haven't driven but a few miles as I am on daily pain medications...without them I have almost no mobility. Flying sounds like a better option but I cannot sit for extended periods of time without adjusting positions. My main problem with flying is all of the walking from the parking areas, through the terminals. This would be more walking then I have done in 3 months.
I know why they want me to go see "their" doctors but can't I request someone equally qualified in my area? This experience no matter how I get there will put me through the ringer and all so they can use it against me...HELP!!!
