Benefits & processes are mandated by specific laws.
since your case is accepted and benefits are being provided(the main reasons for litigation), there is not much subjectivity in determining additional benefits.
the comp court has to approve any finalization.
there are downsides to legal representation.
litigation often leads to lengthy delays. employers may not be willing to bring back a worker who is "suing" them.
the legal system incentivizes lump sum settlements rather then an award with open future benefits.
neither type of surgery nor the type/extent of treatment factor in to impairment payments.
additional disability payments will be based on the extent of any permanent residule impairment as determined by physician rating.
and The best question.....
review all the available information on how workers compensation works in Idaho:
https://iic.idaho.gov/find-a-publication/
vocational rehabilitation is also included in Idaho comp benefits:
https://iic.idaho.gov/rehabilitation-ser...d-workers/

come back if you have more questions...
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
