Finally I have an appointment at the physical therapist for an evaluation at 12:45 tomorrow. After waiting almost 2 weeks for an appointment, I finally have one. Also tomorrow I will know if I will be going back to work or not. Apparently the Doctor has let the people who is handling my short-term disability leave of absence, that I can go back to work with restrictions. One of those restrictions is that I cannot lift anything heavy. I have to find out what the weight limit is, so they can find a place for me at work and if the don’t have a place that I can work then they will extend my leave of absence.
As I was reading over the Doctors notes that he sent me. It said that I could go to work and be a greeter, but I was still a liability to them because I could fall walking from the parking lot and in the store. At least now with the physical therapy I will have some extra help in loosing weight. This will help me in getting to my goal of losing 50-60 pounds so I can have my surgery. Now if I can only get my new knee brace in, everything will be just great.
