But I went with my wife for her shoulder surgery. And the next year for the other one.
And I must say, I was impressed. Everything went like a well oiled machine. The first thing he told her...was to let him know if they were hurting her. He said that no pain no gain crap. Is something we don't beleive in.
Now my first sugeon didn't believe in p.t. It was walk, walk, walk.
And this second guy dose believe in it. But on the other sergery he did. The s.c.s. broke loose from the anchors and was comming right through the skin. So with all of the panic over that. He just forgot.
On this one my P.M. Dr. didn't think I was ready. But the surgeon said, I was fused over 60% and he said he was sending me to a guy he really trusted. Well that guy never worked on me. 3 other different guys did. Well this place reminded me of a low budget place that was herding us in and out like cattle! And the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing, and they threw one more guy in there just to make sure everything was screwed up!
I'm done with the treatments, and I think I hurt more now than before I went in there! X(
I'll let the surgeon know. And when he requests more p.t. I'm going to ask for Auqua therapy. It's a long drive. But they can't hurt me more!
