SDI does not include free medical services. You should apply for Medi-Cal if you have low or no income, or go to a charity clinic or county clinic and get a doctor to refer you for surgery.

There are places that provide free food. Food banks, soup kitchens, etc.

Probably none. That's why you should have an emergency fund.

If you were foolish enough to not have sufficient emergency savings, then those are the consequences. Get a job, eat beans and rice, and sell what you can to survive.

If your disability is expected to last more than 1 year, if your employer offers long term disability you may be eligible for that or federal social security disability.
Other than that, if there are jobs you can hold in your current condition, you should look for one.

long term disability.
