Need advice/Eli's not using CPM machine enough
« on: December 10, 2006, 03:42:34 AM »
Okay.  He's almost 18 and a Senior in HS.  Supposed to be on the machine 6 hours a day and the most he is doing is 2.  He is complaining that it hurts and the thing is, we have had a number of conversations about how the the rehab of this knee is much more important than the surgery itself.  He seems have forgotten that with the pain, and is not doing as the doc has ordered?  Any advice on how to deal with this.  I have emailed a young doctor on Coles team to call my sons cell and talk with him but I am at a roadblock and am not sure what to do.  Any advice????????????
My 17 year old son had the OATS procedure on November 29th, 2006.  He has two previous scopes on the right knee and one on the left.

Make an appointment with his doc and bring your son there.
He should be able take care of the situation so you don't have to.
You don't need to tell your son why he's going there..just say he has an appointment.
That is how I should do with my son or daughter.
