Going to make a PT appt
« on: June 29, 2005, 03:52:36 AM »
Hey all. Things were a bit better today than yesterday, but still leaves something to be desired. Anyway, on to my reason for this post. I have decided to make an appt with my PT and will talk to him about how bad things are getting, get his ideas on what i can do for quad-strengthening (considering nearly everything i do causes agony), and see if maybe he has any influence on surgery dates. I haven't had an appt with him in over a couple months, so it is time to check in anyway, but since i last seen him things have really gone downhill. Up until a month or so ago i was in the gym doing what i could do, but have since been just doing stuff at home, but even that is getting harder by the day. Maybe i am just doing the wrong things, i don't know?! So at the least, i am hoping my PT can give me ideas on quad strengthening, because it is starting to lose strength, and that is the last thing i need before my TTT(whenever it may be  :'( ). I wish i could just snap my fingers and just like that i had a date tomorrow or someday this week! That would be wonderful. Thanks for all of your continuing support!!
