I went to my 6 week check, which was a terrible ride as I posted in cherrykittys thread regarding driving, only to not like the outcome of my visit.
I got called to come an hour and 15 minutes early cause doc was leaving early that day, so I did, had my xrays, and then sat, and sat, till it was the time of my ORIGINAL appt. Not happy there. Then, I am told that he is gonna start me on PT which is fine, but that he thinks "it will do me good to go back to work on the 21st.
I TOLD him I wasn't ready yet, but he didn't listen. Said, that i am doing good walking, sounds as though I am being rather active, so it will do me good. I said I wanted to have AT LEAST 2 weeks PT before going back. So, he wrote the work slip that I go back in 2 weeks for 4 hours the first week, 6 the 2nd week, and the full time.
Problem is, my PT place is so booked up, I may not get in right away! So, I do go in on Monday to be seen, and then they will try to figure out when I can actually have a steady time of PT. I have already decided that if I can't have a steady 2 weeks of PT, then I am calling the docs office back on Monday, telling them that i cant get in right away, and I WANT A NEW SLIP STATING THAT I START WORK
AFTER THE 2 WEEKS OF PT IS UP. So, it may not be the 21st.
Whew........on the bright side........there is beginning to see the first signs of "milky threads of white" which I was told means that I am beginning to fuse despite all the work Ihave done in the last few weeks. That is the only good thing. I am VERY disappointed in this work thing.
What can I do? Wait and see about the PT appts, and then see if I can handle working again already. If I can't, I will be calling to tell him I can't yet.
Well, I need to get off here, to go set up my rummage for the 2nd and last day. YEE-HA! Too much work I tell ya. Later..............hope all are having a great weekend. Tina
