I applied for SSD back in 2002 because my Crohn's Disease made it impossible for me to continue the line of work I was doing. I tried a part time desk job and found that even that wasn't going to be a do-able thing for me anymore either. I also developed severe asthma (COPD). Life was continuing to get harder by the day it seemed. Joint pain, muscle pain and the use of Narcotic Pain Medication all combined to get an appeal of my decision, I was then at that point was given a positive determination. It did take a Social Security Lawyer along with all of my Physicians working on my behalf.
It is a hard battle but if you are truly unable to hold gainful employment due to your physical or emotional health it is one that you can win.
Best of luck to you.
Also, I am facing the surgery you already have and I am worried about your bleeding issue. I would be calling asap to find out what should or shouldn't be happening.
