Finally saw my Dr. We got all my issues straightened out, concerning call backs, reaching someone on call and refills. He said I am not the only complaint and apologized and said he is addressing staff about the long wait,etc. Maye he is maybe he isn't. Made me feel better when said anytime I call, I should have a call back by end of the day.
Sooooo my x-rays are beautiful. He showed me where the implants and grafts are starting to fuse!! YAY.And as Andrea reminded me, I should have taken pics since they don't do digital on cd there yet. I could've posted in the pic post. Next visit is 6 wks. I will then.
I have Green 45mm pedicle screws, my fave color. Bronze rods. He got a whole kit and showed me how he put it together. He loves that kind of work is obvious. He was like a kid showing me. That kind of cracked me up.
He did up my pt, since I advised him all they are having me do is ride a bike and leg lifts and that I can do that myself. He said to learn the moves in 2-3 sessions and he trusted me to follow directions and do them at home to save me co-pay and save some pt visits since my insurance limits them to 30 per year. Just in case I need any refreshers later.
He also suggested staying off my butt and stop falling. I told him how accident prone I have become and unless he can fix that, I just have to deal, but I am being more careful. He kept me at 10 lb lift limit.
So all is well in my world tonight. Sigh of relief. Again you have all been a great help (esp. Lisa B and Andrea N.O.T) I guess that happens when we all ride the same train.
Hugs all around,
