    Just another head's up.If you go out for surgery and you have to take the Agility Test before returning.Please make sure you get a copy of test and be prepared for it.Call Corp. Office and ask for a copy.Hear of so many who fail test and they had no clue what it was all about till it was to late.If you fail it's 30-45 days before you can retake and you have been released by your doctor so your disability has stopped. Alway's private message if you need a contact to get info.

    So, what's the purpose behind this test? Surely a doctor releasing you for full duty should be enough, not to mention a completed course of prescribed physical therapy.

    Good luck, BB! Hope all turns out well! I don't know from personal experience (yet), but returning from joint-replacement surgery can be a toughie. You know the saying: the older we get...

    Hang in there!

    I was out in 2012 with neck surgery and at that time there was no test.Just return letter from Doctor returning me to full duty with no restriction's.

    I didn't know or wasn't told that I could split reps . I just banged it out (and almost passed out, lol) . splitting it up would've helped

    I can understand that, but if this was an on-the-job injury, that's different.

    All depends on where you have it done and how they understand the test.

    No difference.If OD say's you must take test to return.Not all type's of injury's or surgery's require a agility test to be able to return.

    Stepped in pothole in old San Antonio terminal in 06, sprained knee, off 2 days with anti inflammatory meds and rehab. Did a agility test to return on 3rd day, duck walk length of hallway. Doc commented " See you are red face and believe in pain, yet you passed, if you want to return" Ok, after 09 layoffs, returned for rehire, was honest, told of previous injury they already knew, worked on that leg for 3 years, no issue, still had to do an agility test, delayed rehire by 10 days.

    With Worker's Comp and any pre hire injury that was posted on your application .OD has required a Agility Test before returning.It was more crawling and climbing a believe than all the lifting with the Agility Test

    I heard the agility test was actually called the BillyLo Big Rig Evaluation... They have you walk down the hallway,with a cup of kook aid on your head,and you have to pee in a bottle,while you walk and balance the cup for 20 feet? If you spill either,you fail....
