Ant idea why the Dr. did that to Elaine?Doctors should have more sense and more compassion.
Over 22 years ago, Elaine was being retired Totally and Permanently Disabled, from too many years of high speed typing for lawyers appearing before impatient judges. As part of her retirement approval, she was referred to a hand doctor appointed from the government's side.
He was a big fellow and insisted on shaking her hand, and she whimpered in pain.
I was just recently retired from powerlifting and had a 280 kg (617 lbs) deadlift, so I shook his hand, and he winced.
Not proud of it, as I believe with great strength you should be gentle, but he hurt Elaine. Don't know if he learned anything from it.
Cheers and keep the faith.
If a Dr. was that ham handed with a chart I would see to it that they never entered my room either David.Where I live, you don't even need a permit to conceal carry a firearm. I doubt a doctor is gonna do similar to my wife!
I kid, I kid... I don't carry a firearm. I just wanted to point out the absurdity of a doctor doing that.
When I was in the hospital after the wreck, a doctor dropped (what was to me) heavy charts and clipboards onto the leg I'd just had operated on the day before. I calmly pointed out that she'd done so and she said something snarky about 'oh, so that hurt did it?' and I made sure she never entered my room again.
I mostly had the most awesome treatment known to man, but that instance (and one other) made me speak up.
The second was that I have low blood pressure, especially if I've been prone. Well, I'd been prone for a few days and a nurse had me stand up for the first time. I did so and was immediately gonna fall on the ground. I said something and she said 'stop faking'. Sure enough, and the pain was intense - oh so very intense 'cause at the time just bending a foot was painful, I started falling.
The next thing I know there's a few people picking me up, again the pain was horrible, and I was back in bed. Again, I made sure that nurse never saw me again.
Other than those two instances, things were awesome. I was treated for a bit over a year and those were the only things I can possibly complain about.

I can only imagine how angry you were.
Did you file a complaint with the medical board on the Dr. or the nurse?
Have a nice holiday everyone!
They only cover 20 visit's until the New Year.You too! We celebrated on Sunday, for logistics reasons. So, I'll be around tomorrow - though I'll still be cooking up some delicious food.
And, that sounds like great progress. If PT is working this well, maybe your insurance will continue to cover PT long enough for you to maybe avoid surgery? I know some insurance companies are moronic about this and will only pay for a small number of appointments. That seems pretty silly when PT is actually progressing well.
Enjoy your delicious turkey!
