I've had 3 surgeries and the last was a complete failure and was still fixable but workers compensation had me do an IME test and exams while they lied and said it would be fixed and would work again as a nurse with little to no pain. I was instructed to take my max dose of pain medications by the IME staff before the tests due to the nature of the exams. I was also told to take more during the exam if I needed them. I was released back to full duty no restriction(normal) the following month. I was never given an option and my shoulder is a mess and I've been on the pain meds since my surgery in 2010 and I am not legally able to work as a nurse or anywhere on narcotics and my shoulder is fixable and I'm still very young. Was this legal by Washington State? What are my options? Thank You.
