If any of you have read my other threads you're already aware of my on going battle with Liberty Mutual. herniated a disc, they sent me to quack doctors who gave me anti-inflammatory pills, cortizone shots & phys therapy. All of which did nothing. finally had surgery, was told it was a 95% success rate. got better for awhile, then started having muscle spasms down my left leg to the point where I couldnt walk. Did another 6 months in phys therapy. Felt much better but still had some pain in my left calf right where the sciatic nerve is. Doc told me that I may need to start looking for another career & sent me back to work, full duty. Put in 4 days, came in on a Weds & asked if I could bump one of the rookies who was gonna go home anyway so I could sit on the heating pad & relax & stretch all day cause my left leg was feeling sore. woke up Thurs & couldnt walk or make a bowel movement, called it in & they referred me back to Liberty. Liberty sent me to a neurosurgeon for a 2nd opinion, he wants another MRI done because the 3 I had for him werent visible enough for him. He then told me that manual labor may not be for me & that depending on what the MRI shows I'll either be going for surgery again or I'll have to deal with the pain for the rest of my life with medications. Callled my lawyer directly afterwards & gave him the scoop & explained to him that if they think they can push me out of UPS I have every intention of fighting them to the bloody f'ing death over it. I'm your typical UPS driver, some days I love my job & other days I hate it but I wouldnt trade it for the world because there is no better place to be for a blue collar schlub like myself with no college education. My lawyer seems to think they can put me in a light-duty position if it comes down to it. I told him I think he's wrong due to the union & seniority & bid rules. So my question is: if I'm disqualyfied from work by the doctors & I'm out of a job comepletely?
