    I've got a hernia. So, i basically can't work for a month and a half. I've got to have surgery, and i can't even get in to see the doctor for 2 weeks. I deliver appliances, so there is basically no way for me to work, and i think my company will try to lay me off. Fun stuff, especially since taxes are due next month. When it rains it pours

    Is the hernia work related? Either way that sucks. Are they going to put you in a cast? I think I will check into Afflack for myself(there's no joke there).

    yeah, it is work related, so it will be an L&I (workers comp) claim, but i don't know how it works exactly

    Hope you have better luck with yours. I had my operation last march. About September when all the nerves started growing back some of them got trapped in the scar tissue. It sometimes hurts as much as the hernia. It's geting better though..thankfully

    You report the injury (you have I'm sure) and your company makes the report to the comp carrier. If they don't, you may need to make it by calling the carrier. Depending on how large the company is, the HR dept or person should have made the claim as soon as you told them that you were hurt.
