    Have your treaters continued your disability, or have they deferred to the conclusions of voc-rehab that you're ready to return to work?

    big different report from both drs.' one common agreement- able to return on restricted duty.-employer created a new position-janitor- used to do this kind of work before i recieved training in truck driving.didn't report towork when told to do so. the new position requires the usage of the same area of body that was injured. having recieved no type of treatment or physical therapy.[except being forced to heal on my own.]cervical area[ 2 bulging disc] both shoulders and arms. both scapular area. left foot. pre-trial mediation was postponed due to storm. how could the believe that after all that i been through and still going through, that i will go back there and eventually be fired? all i wanted was adequat medical treatment. which i haven't rec'd as of today. can they stop my weekly check before being seen by court apointed dr. what should i do?
