Question Spondylolisthesis and Disability ~ Is anyone on disability for this?

Hello there,
After much agonizing, I decided today to pursue disability. I've tried a number of jobs over the years and have not been able to find anything that I could handle physically. Currently, I work fulltime as a classroom aide in a special ed class, but it is killing me. I've been doing this almost 3 years and will lose the time I have toward retirement and also my insurance benefits, but I do not know what else to do. I am rather discouraged about the whole thing. I talked to the office girl at my PM doctors office and she felt confident that he would help me get on disability. I think the ortho doctors I've been too will probably be willing, too. I really don't want to go this route, but I don't know what else to do. Has anyone been successful getting disability for this? I am not sure where to begin with contacting who? and will they try to force me to try a fusion first?

Thanks for any help,

Sponsors Lightbulb

Disability questions should only be posted on the disability board.

Thank you.
