- 0Feb 26 by ShondaJQuote from CamwillI am at 40% for bilateral knee and hip problem. I had to get a letter from my doctor and show a job that I could do without causing further injury. I also had to get a letter from a hospital willing to hire me with my disability. I did that and showed proof I needed my master to be competitive for the position I wanted. I graduate in May I will be working with that hospital and finishing my master while doing it.
Thank you so much Camwill! That will help me fight it. Because I have been employed in jobs that people will more sever back and knee pains could not do and I am fine. No pain or issues. We will have the once in awhile pain which is normal for any injuries but to tell me I can't do it when I am working now and it is not bothering me.
I am already in Voc Rehab and My Case Manager keeps telling me that it has to be within my capabilities. I see yours are not that much different from me. Bilateral Knees and Back Pain with asthma that doesn't bother me much. I don't even carry an inhaler regularly. I see the doctor maybe once a year if that for the back and knees but I have not been bed ridden from it or taken off work.
I am going to continue talking to him about it. I will work on the letters from the doctor about it as well. If you don't mind, what state are you in? I am in California.
