Oh good for you! I can't believe you've been denied twice (wait, am I saying
here? ha ha!I can't believe lots
of people are denied with their ailments.)
But at least Feb. isn't that far off and having a lawyer will most certainly help. I wish you all the best! My mom-in-law had problems with her shoulders and back, not nearly as severe as yours, had a spinal fusion, applied for disability and was denied twice . She ended up going in front of a lawyer and was awarded disability immediately. So think positive!
