I've had. following a surgery. But they gave me 3 exercises to do at home. When I asked for a print out of them because I'd never remember the exercises or how to do them correctly. And they said they don't have any. WTH.
Long ago when I was seeing chiropractors. And they gave me exercises to do at home. They gave me fool proof print outs that you could not misunderstand of what and how to do the prescribed exercises.
And at that point in time no one is on meds!
Now these physical therapists doing P.T. on post surgery patience with burned out memories due to drug use. Give you nothing! :jawdrop:
Needless to say. I did them wrong. And now I've got a fricken Knife in my back. That my meds won't even begin to touch! X(
I call them and tell them that I have to have a print out of my exercises. And can they email them to me. They say they don't yet have that capability.But they could make them up And could I come down there in person and get them.
Well, I said yes, but I didn't want to cause of the knife in my back. But that I would be there in 30 min.
When I got there they were supposed to be waiting for me at the front desk. But they weren't even done yet, could I wait? I said I would rather not. And they said it would just be a couple of minutes.
It was 30 min. ~X( And when I got home and looked at them, to do them. Guess what? They weren't right!!! X(
And I can't find them on any web site!!!

    Sorry to hear of your pain caused by the exercises. I hope that it's settled down by now at least. Your problems with getting the print out doesn't surprise me at all...sounds like the luck I would have.

    Have you been back to PT? Is your pain any better? I certainly hope so.

    I have my scheduled p.t. appoint. today. (Tues. @ Thurs.)
    If they don't have print outs of my at home exercises, I'll be calling the surgeon. And ask for someone else!

    When I got there, the owner, head guy, asked, "how was I doing today". I said, fair. Do you have the print outs?
    He gave me a pissy look and waved a C. D. and said he brought the soft ware to make them.
    Right there in the front waiting room, I said I talked to many, many, people. And none of them had ever heard of not having schematics printed out for the individual patients. :O
    Then, He looked really pissy! I'm not to impressed with this place. X(
    And to top it off the therapist did a manipulation with my legs. First right then left. And told me to tell him when it hurt. I did, and he kept going! So I screamed at him, "I said, IT HURT!!! X( I felt like slapping him. I don't care what kind of shape I'm in! :S
    I'm NOT to impressed. And I'll be letting my surgeon know on Mon. ~X(

    Sorry for what you're going through. I hope you can get your surgeon to send you somewhere else. They sound very unprofessional there!

    I hope you aren't having a lot of extra pain because of this!

    Let me know what happens.
