My friend was injured in June '08 when he was climbing on to the forklift (he snapped both perineal tendons, had surgery where they could only re-attach one). He went through months of physical therapy and non stop pain. He isn't able to drive for more than a few minutes at a time without intense pain and has to walk at a very slow pace now. The surgeon was ready to release him, however because of his difficulty doing the tasks he used to he is scheduled for a functional capacity test next week.
What can he expect and does anyone have any advice?
