I have an OWCP accepted back injury from 3 years ago (L5 protrusion with radiopathy and L4 protrusion). Medical visits have been paid to date. Since last November I have had pain flair ups where I have missed several weeks of work on 3 separate occasions, I used sick leave to cover them, (finding out I can't convert it to OWCP leave once I use SL). I just had another MRI and it shows the L5 is slightly worse and causing the flare ups.

Should I simply fill out the CA7 or do I have to argue consequential injury. From what I understand the CA2a is difficult and this is not a reoccurrence as the original injury was never resolved. I'm wondering weather the OWCP is going to require a CA2a and an explanation on how this worsened. FYI the MRI was approved as well as an injection.
