I am not quite sure where this should be posted. First time here. I just got a copy of the IME report, yesterday. I am wondering what is usually done when there are contradictory statements in the report (within the same sentences even)?
Examples (from the report):
The claimant can stand and walk up to two hours because of the easy fatigability, severity of the pain, lumbar degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy and failed cervical fusion with recurrent degenerative disc disease with cervicalgia.
The claimant can sit up to two hours because of pain with sitting from degenerative disc disease.
The claimant can lift and carry up to 20 pounds occasionally and 10 pounds frequently because of the decreased range of motion of the neck, mild decreased grip, easy fatigability, cervical and lumbar degenerative dis disease with radiculopathy and and decreased balance.
Anyone else see the problem??? It goes on with a few more statements saying "CAN" because of all the issues.
