This is not a medical malpractice question. I will reclassify it so the right kind of attorneys see it. I'm sorry to hear about your husband's misfortunes.Good luck.
If it's long term disability plan disability, look at the definition. In the Social Security Arena it's whether or not the person still has the basic ability to do some kind of work 35 hours a week--taking tickets at a movie theatre, for example, and tha will last for one year or more. So in his case it looks like the combination of issues would impair his ability to work so may as well start the process now.
He may qualify for Social Security Disability and/or other disability programs depending on the medical records and a number of other factors. It's worth looking into it.
