Re: Put on hold
Hello....Sorry to hear about your situation. Given what you have provided, here is what I'm thinking is happening......All cases are reviewed by a SS case mgr and an in house medical staff. My guess is they don't have the expertise to make a qualified decision and will have to do some research, or wait until more information is provided. However, I would think that your Doc's position will carry great weight, given the circumstances.
In addition, one's medication is always a factor, regardless of medical condition. Primarily, it's an indication of your overall condition (one taking more or stronger pain meds for example is different than one taking less) and the meds themselves all have known side effects, which are factors as well.
Your testimony in terms of what you can and can't do will carry a lot of weight as well.
Best of luck to you in your application process. I hope it all works out for you.
