I applied and got denied. I didn't appeal because the os that completed the paperwork for me is not the os I will be using for my surgery. They wanted 2 exam notes and a description of the xray and what not. I just got fed up and gave up. I don't see an os regularly to get 2 exam notes. They said I can't try again unless my condition worsens.@Mersada, have you spoken to your doctor about a handicapped sticker - these can be temporary for 6m but renewable for those days when walking is hard and you have to drive somewhere. I found I needed it more pre surgery than post. I see you are on Staten Island so do not know how much driving vs mass transit is in your daily routine but I thought I would suggest this.
