I recommend secure a second opinion. Also, I think you should secure the services of a lawyer.
By providing this general answer, no attorney-client relationship has been established. This general answer is distributed for informational purposes only and it should not be construed as a substitution for legal advice.
I agree with the other responses that you should obtain an attorney and get a second opinion regarding your injury.
In my opinion, you need a WC atty. right away who can refer you to a competent MD for an immediate 2nd opinion before you do anything else.

I am sorry you are having so much trouble. I am not quite sure why the doctor wants to do what he recommends, but I would talk to him to clarify why he is making this recommendation. You might be able to ask him to send you to another doctor for a second opinion if you are uncomfortable with the recommendation. An attorney can help you navigate a change of physician if that becomes necessary.
You need to retain an attorney.

If the doctor says you are not able to work, you should be entitled to weekly workers' compensation benefits. I would recommend you consult with a workers' compensation attorney to get your benefits started asap.
