im in the middlle of frustration as well. my OS said yesterday to continue my rehab program, keep getting the isokinetic testing done in my physiotherapists and that the goal is to get my bad leg 5% stronger than my good one.

so i phoned the physio when i left the OS and the receptionist said 'we will call you back'. never called back so i phoned again today and she said 'yes we will contact you', and still no appointment made!!! im at a loss to know why i cant just make an appointment!!! im also suspicious about the non communication from them - the head physio in there kept telling me that she would not have taken my case on only for the OS referred me to her and that in her opinion i need surgery, and that she doesnt think physio is the answer - so now im wondering do they just not want to continue working with me?
and the are the only place that has that isokinetic testing machine so its not like i can just go elsewhere.

deja vu....why do we have to fight to get treatment???
do you feel like physio helps you?
my PT is very reluctant to see me, but ive fought to have it as i feel a bit better when i leave
my PT is saying the same, she thinks i need surgery, just got to see what this specialist says
are you on the NHS??

im replying to you in 2 threads now :)

i think its good you got passed to another pt if the current one feels its beyond their capabilities. the new one might have more magic to work.
are you in a lot of pain? you poor divil - its not been an easy time for you.....

my physios are now refusing to see me and give me any more treatment until the OS has done something about my knee as there is no improvement
