I have discussed employment with my doctors and they say I can work (of course with common sense limits, I won't be playing with knives or being a skydiving Elvis or anyting like that) but I have submitted letters from both my hematologist and my internal medicine doctor and previously from several other doctors saying that I can work to vocational rehabilitation but the Lovenox issue remains their top stalling tactic. I have had five voc rehab counselors since January, 2008 and every single one of them has felt that when insurance wouldn't pay that was a barrier to employment due to the bunch of clotting disorders I have, and when they will pay as is the case presently and I'm on Lovenox then they say I can't work because of the risk issues. If anyone is on this stuff and employed and you don't mind saying what sort of work are you doing? I have a great deal of education and experience but since 2008 when I had several consecutive months of trouble with this I have not been able to get anyone to hire me to do anything, and the fact that vocational rehab is not helping is extremely aggravating. I'm seriously thinking about a discrimination suit against voc rehab for being unwilling to be bothered if my current counselor doesn't finally do something.

Yes I am working while taking the drug. What I don’t know how to answer is your statement of "bunch of clotting disorders" and what they are doing to you. What level of Lovenox are you on and are you getting more clots after being on the Lovenox? Are you going on and then off of the Lovenox when you appear to be better? What kind of doctor are you seeing for your problem? I am project manager and degreed engineer and am climbing over cooling towers, chillers, air handling units and other building items and do not have any issues other than getting a new clot occasionally.
