Maybe.  did she find a place for you?  Your employer may be required to provide a reasonable accommodation.  However if the nature of your job duties don't allow that or if the accommodation costs the employer too much money, you may not have a remedy.  For example, if you were a football player and your doctor said you can't be tackled, your employer wouldn't be required to provide you a spot on the team that allows you to be paid but avoid being tackled. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
