EVERY INJURED ENTITLED TO "REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION" BY THEIR EMPLOYER....

I would think that a meaningful discussion on your return to work would start with a clear and precise agreement and understanding of your work restictions/limitations. Your situation would likely require individually tailored transitional work and may result in less then a full-time assignment.
Such a program should be directed by a professional return-to-work specialist or vocational rehabilitation counselor.
have you initiated such a conversation with your employer?
when do you expect to be able to?

Right now i am in the process of Physical Therapy but have been told by SSDI that I can not return to my previous work. I have done that type of work for 35 years that is all i Know.
Cervical Fusion 2003, c5-c6. Herniated and damaged Disc L1- L4-L5 S1. Lumbar Spinal Cord stimulator implant 09-2008. Cervical ACDF revision with hardware c4-c5-c6-c7 Sept 2009.
SSDI approved 3-2010. NOW OFFICIALY RETIRED

that's not an uncommon problem.
Men seem to have an especially difficult time in switching careers or dealing with job loss.
many impairment based states also use age as a factor in how job change and job loss are handled--providing more benefits the older one is.
professional rehabilitation consultants are aware of these added obstacles. being open and keeping an open mind to the process will help
