Retro TTD start date (California)

If the first medical report is several months after DOI, is there are an argument that TTD runs from the first medical evidence or does the DOI govern?

TD is a medical determination (at its core). I, and most medical evaluators, would want to see a report finding TD or at least documenting a condition upon which another physician could reasonably find TD. Otherwise the evidence is speculative.
