I just had arthroscopic shoulder surgery about 3 weeks ago. I have had bad shoulders all my life with dislocations or I should say partial dislocations, my right shoulder got so bad on me that I couldn’t hardly use it at all so I was working one day and went to lift a heavy piece of equipment pulled something went off on comp and they sent me to three surgeons which two of them said that my shoulder was really bad and that it is basically wore out. When the third surgeon seen me he didn’t act like it was that bad as the other two surgeons and said he didn’t agree with what the other surgeons said but once he got me in surgery I was in there over two hours and once he done all he could do he came out and said that it was worse than what he thought and also said it would last for awhile but it was really bad. He ended up having to put pins in there and some kind of rope or something to hold stuff together. He is now saying I won’t ever be able to lift over my head or lift heavy things at all, Also he said the only way I could lift is straight up from the floor nothing away from my body. I’m 47 years old been working for the same company for 27 years and the doctor won’t come out and say I can’t go back but he is saying all these things I have listed above, my question is what do I do and do I need to sign-up for disability or what? I don’t want to get stuck without any income coming in and don’t know what to do in this situation if someone could give me some input on what do ask or do in this situation I would really appreciate the help!!
