Blood clots

I found out I had a torn meniscus and had knee surgery Sept 07, I did not file under workers comp in fear of losing my job when I returned. A month after surgery I developed blood clots and had to remain out of work for a total of 4 months. I recently returned to my very strenuous job and having difficulty working. I do not want to take more time off and my job does not know I still have a blood clot. My question is could a suit be filed against my job for workers comp because I have a feeling I will have to find a whole new job due to the original injury or against the surgeon, who I feel is resonsible for the blood clots. And to make it better the surgeon has not followed up with me since the blood clots took place, his office instructed me to the hospital and I have not seen since.
