Ortho appointment today
Thursday, April 21, 2016
So my appointment with the orthopedists went pretty well today. Since I'm showing improvement, I get to continue PT for another 4-6 weeks! I'm happy about that (not so happy about $50 a week to PAY for it though) because I feel like we're making progress.
I go back in another month, and if at that time it's not improved enough for me to resume my regular fitness, he said we'll have no choice to move forward and do a cortisone shot. I REALLY don't want the shot, and he knows that. I've told him over and over again that if he puts a shot in it and it feels better to me, I'll push it and could seriously hurt it. I'm well aware of my inability to NOT push it when it feels better....hence the setbacks I've had so far! lol
So I get to go to PT tomorrow and work with John to come up with a plan for the next 6 weeks. Time to make some progress and avoid that needle!
