Surgery and Going back to work

Do we have to report surgery immediately after having it done and cleared by our personal doctor to get a new med card or do we wait for the every 2 year deal or 5 year if renewing. Just had some back surgery and want to be prepared for what I need to do. I have the office end covered with hippa laws, just have to clear my doctor and they can’t ask about the type of surgery just not sure about the CG.

There is no requirement to report a change in medical condition. You will have to report it when you renew your medical certificate.

Thank you!
