    My lawyer filed the necessary paperwork to the appeals council in April 2006. As of today have not heard anything back from either one. Should I call the lawyer and see what is going on?, or just wait and see. are his hands tied also?

    A little feed back would be nice from the lawyer would be nice.

    Called to check on my new application that was filed in April. They keep telling me no decision has been made and that the drs. are still reviewing the case.

    This has to be the worst nightmare I have ever had.

    Was evaluated by their dr in july.

    Thought the system was suppose to be improving.

    Paige I would call your attorney even if you hear that nothing has come down yet. At least then you know where you are sitting. Sometimes the decisions can take forever. You should also be able to call your hearing and appeals office and they should be able to tell you where in the process you are. The phone number should be somewhere on the letter you got from them letting you know when and where your court date was. If you can't find it call your local office and ask them for the number they have it. Hope you hear something good soon.....SueF
