  1. Dear Sir,
    I am a Postal Letter Carrier with 30 years of Federal Service. Since Last April I have been suffering from an old on the job Frature of some thorasic vertabraies. I have filed a recurrence, however, the DOL has draged there feet and I am now being send for an independent medical exam. The problem is from degenerative changes for the worst and after some medical procetures to releive the pain it is only getting worse. I had no intentions of retiering until I had the 41+11 years to receive the 80%. I have been without pay for about a year shortly. And do hope to get my pay after seeing the IME. Were do I go from hear? I dont want to retiere at this time, however, it dose not seem likely I will be able to. What to I do? Were do I go? ETC, ETC,
