Question crps ' functional capacity evaluation'

Hi, Has anyone here ever have a 'fce'?. I have already had one last year and am now going to have another one. The first I had a year ago was for my job to see what I was able to do which came back as not much at all. Now I am going to have another one to see what my limits are as of today.

I now have a scs so I have no idea how this one will turn out.

I feel that a fce for someone with crps would be hard to evaluate because it is the pain that limits what I can and can't do.

Has anyone here ever had a fce? and if so what was your outcome?.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi cattys,
I've not had this done. Wonder if in your State's wc site they post what is entailed in this. I would think its in there somewhere.

Sorry I can't answer your question precise enough and I wouldn't want to lead you astray. I hope that you can educate me when you get back from it. Hope someone else can tell you more. Best of luck in it

Hi, how are you doing? I hope good.

Thanks for responding to my post. You are the best.

I tell you Shaman, this long road with comp just wears me down at times. I have to keep fighting ,there is no way I will let them win this one.

I will let you know how the fce goes. It is a 2 day test and I know I will be really hurting afterwards.

Thanks again.
Take care. cattys
