Hopefully you have a lawyer, if not get one quick. Just because they know most of the hoopes that have to be jumped through. I don't know what state your in but I don't think they can fire you for your injury. At least seek the advise of a attorney so you won't be going in there blindly, I have heard of offers for $1000. for a head injury that was completely disabling, $500. for a completely crushed foot, and with a lawyer at least he can laugh at them with you. Good Luck!!!
Oh Yeah, you are intitled to second and 3rd opinions, or a complete change of attending physicians. What state are you in? You can also talk to a ombudsman with the state, they can tell you some of your rights, but I don't think they can legally advise you.
