Total Pancreatectomy

I am a 22 month survivor after Whipple surgery at Jax Mayo. I also am a retired lawyer. When I was actively practicing law I represented a few clients in disability issues. It was my experience that Social Security Disability employees almost always denied a claim on first filing but almost always approved it on re-filing. While you and I are at the moment in remission, we still have many issues from the surgery, chemo and radiation,which are a direct result of the cancer. You might want to consult a social security disability attorney to review your case. In my day, the lawyer did not charge a fee unless he or she was successful in getting the benefit approved.
I hope and pray that you and I both continue in remission. With some adjustments we can continue with our lives.

Thank you so much. I’m going to look up some disability attorneys right now! I do know some just take the percentage if you win and I feel like that type of attorney may be better than this “free” one that was offered to me through the hospital I had my surgery at. He doesn’t seem to care if I win or lose and he doesn’t communicate with me or ever return my phone calls. So I think it’s time for a new one! I hope you’re doing okay and I’m going to keep you in my prayers! We got this!!!
