It was not something I'd do again even if you paid me, ant.
Good news.....the doc said no PT yet! My range of motion is GREAT, and "you've got the hard part done." I still need strength PT, but that has to wait for more healing. There is visible bone healing going on and he'd like to see more, but he's satisfied with what is there for now.
I can walk if I want to, and I have been cruising around the house without aid, but I still need help for distances and will use a cane rather than the cumbersome walker when I go out. My neighbor found a wheelchair at Goodwill for $25, and I cleaned that up for when I want to go shopping for more than just a short in and out. I still tire easily.
The bad news is that the neuroma foot is now worse than the broken leg, and I can't address that until I can walk solely on the injured side. Ay yi yi.
I have another appointment Friday with a different doc for the nose. I don't trust this last guy (or his inept staff) and will get a second opinion. They didn't have me down for an appointment....but someone named Barbara Bennett was in my time slot. I even spelled my name when I made the appointment! "Oh, that must be you, did you inhale cough syrup?" No, I coughed a pill into my sinuses. Gee, same thing to them, just write down anything, ya got the two B's right.
I saw him for about 4 minutes on Friday and he ordered a CT scan and said use nasal spray and a listerine type product.
I spend the weekend with a migraine, same as usual for the last 18 days, and call Monday. Results are in, I'll tell the doctor to call you. I wait all day, then call back at 3:30pm, I'm tired of waiting. If it's an infection, I want to start on anti-biotics. If it isn't, I need to find out why I have this headache and start fixing it.
After 2 minutes on hold, she comes back and says, "What can I help you with?" like she doesn't know she put me on hold, I run through the story again. She says, "Let me find out what I can." She comes back on the phone a few minutes later. "The doctor said your CT scan was normal."
"So.........it's not an infection, why am I still sick?" She answers, "I don't know. That's all the doctor told me."
"Well, what do I do now?" I'm getting irritated. "I don't know. That's all the doctor told me."
"Am I supposed to just do NOTHING else for this? What about the headaches?" She says, "I don't know."Doc cares so much he can't even bother to talk to me? GRRR.
So I said "You know what? Cancel my next appointment that I had in THREE WEEKS. I'll take my money somewhere else." She got all snotty with me. WTF? Is it me??
So I get to wait all week with this horrid headache to see someone else, with no relief. I paid this doctor $145 for an office visit.
