In September 2011 I had surgery to repair a hernia in my gut. The injury happened on the job and I was out of work for 5 weeks. The 5 weeks I was out I used all sick time. Besides filing a claim to get back the sick time I used, am I entitled to any money for pain and suffering?

You do not get pain and suffering in workers compensation. You should have your sick time reimbursed at the workers compensation rate.
