Is CABG (bypass surgery) a disability?

Q: I am a 46 years old male working as a supervisor in a coal mine. I underwent CABG (bypass surgery) two months back. Now I am healthy. My surgeon had certified me medically fit to resume duties in underground coal mines. I have the following questions to ask:

  1. Should I resume working in coal mines?
  2. Is CABG (bypass surgery) a disability?
  3. To what extent or percentage is bypass surgery a disability?

A:Here are the answers to your questions:

  1. If your surgeon has already certified you, then I don't think you need to be worried. Please have faith in your surgeon and follow his advice.
  2. The rules regarding disability are laid down specifically by each institution and therefore you need to contact your company’s doctor or company’s health resource personnel for this information.
  3. Generally bypass surgery does not come under the category of disability and therefore, percentage is not applicable. However, if there are some special rules for underground mining, then I am not aware of them and I repeat, your local doctor may be more knowledgeable in this regard.
