Re: L5/S1 Recovery

I went to school to become a Medical Assistant, that line of work you can have to lift and assist patients. The job I was at I got let go from. I was actually on my way from one clinic to our satellite clinic when the car accident happened so it ended up being work comp. After I had the 3 level ACDF in 2010 I went back to work after 8 weeks. They gave me a hard time every day. It was awful. I didnt quit so in the end I was told I was not doing my job correctly and let go. I have not worked since 8-24-11. So when I go back there is no light duty. I will need to be at my best and find another job so he thinks it should be something other than medical assistant. they will have to pay to retrain me, I dont want to leave the medical field so I am going to go for my Phlebotomy. This whole thing has been a nightmare.
