I'm sorry you have to deal with that. From what I understand, filling out disability forms and the like is the patient's responsibility, though I believe your doctor can write a letter to send in with the forms, helping your case. Even still, it is a long, painful process in and of itself. I have a friend with terminal cancer who is still being denied disability (in the US) because she has the use of a single hand, so that apparently makes her able-bodied enough to work. I can't understand that. Most everyone is told no the first, even second times. You have to get a lawyer and make an appeal. A doctor writing up some stuff to send with the disability paperwork could help your case, though.
yes i know getting on disability will be hard but at this point i am not able to work and the doctor want to try this PT first. i have a lawyer and was told my case will be stronger if the doctor starts the paper work first.
