doc suggest 30 day trial to work on full duty
#1
I told my treating doc that I want my primary doc to release me back to work full duty w/no restrictions. He suggests the doc to write a 30day trial on full duty then return to doc for follow up. Is that ok to do? I think they want to make sure I am able to perform my duties before just signing a release. Also, when the doc does sign a release to work on full duty with no restrictions does that mean I am permanent and stationary then?

alagada1, it can be done, i did that back in june. my doctor sent me to work to see if i could do just what was required from my job description (never wrote i was P&S) and after 3 months i was worse than before so he took me off work again. i have to say that i really thought i could do it if i was careful, using my left hand as much as possible. my supervisors knew i had an injury that needed to be fixed and even though i was with no restrictions i was put doing more and more of the rare things within my job description that made me worse (lifting up to 50 lbs repetetively, carrying heavy items with both hands, pushing and pulling large bulky carts, lots of ® hand repetetive stuff). there are 2 other people on the shift who could have also did these duties but i was picked every time. i knew every time there was something that was needing to be done and would hurt me more to do it i would be ordered to get it done and i was right. i tried to do my job but now i regret it. here i sit until i get it fixed, fighting for TD because i tried to work. hope you don't get worse over time.
