Determination Board Question!!!

My Uncle recieved a call from the detemanation board yesterday.She wanted to know more about his work history, like what he had done on all his jobs .. What kind of tools and equiptment he has used at jobs and.She said they are waiting for results from the stress test (tread mill) that they had him to do two weeks ago so the Dr. could look at them so they could make their decision.. He wasn't able to do it. The guy giving the test took him off because his legs got all shaky and he couldn't hardley breath.He said they should have never had him doing the test this soon after having a heart cath. done just 2 weeks before...Has had a quadroople bypass 5 years ago. numerous heart caths with stents, lots of meds.. Do u think they are thinking that he could do so kind of work, or what was the reason for the call>> Thanks for responses..

Re: Determination Board Question!!!

Social security does call during the process of a application. The treadmill test sounds like it proved his disablity , because he could not do it well. AND it seems pretty dangerous to even make him try. Hopefully he will get an approval soon, and will not make him do anymore tests that could be life threatning.

He will be 55 in May... He just has tried fro so long to keep working and not give up.Was taken from work 2 to 3 or more times a month by rescue to ER. Finally his heart Dr.told him no more, he had to apply for disability..They are just really having a hard time . No income since Sept..His wife went for a physical on Friday and is almost as bad as him!! DD deceaseand they put on that was unable to do any gainful employment..something wrong with the top chambers of her heart, sending her to a heart dr..,something about artery decease in her legs, uncontrolled sugar (very high ) even though she is taking several shots a day, And copd..said she has the lungs of a 93 year old man...I am trying to get her to sign up for disability as well but, she wants to wait for his case to be settled . Afraid it would interfer with his.. Very worried about them both.. Thank you so much for any support and responses..

Agreed . Both of them need to apply , and not wait for the other one to be approved. Social Security can be a long, tedious process, even when you do win, their is a waiting period. Both of them have very serious medical problems, It is not right for them to have to play the waiting game with Social Security. I hope things gp smoothly and fast .
