Had to miss PT tonight...
« on: October 23, 2002, 06:09:15 AM »
Hi!  I had a 4:30 appointment for PT and since I started  going in March, I have never missed a session.  but today, I had a 3:00 appointment with my ortho.  They didn't call me from the big waiting room to his waiting room until 4:15 and I didn't get into the exam room until 4:20--20 minutes later, I saw the doc.  We had a long talk and he ordered repeat xrays.  Then we talked some more.  He discussed all of the aspects of a TKR, showed me one of the appliances they use, gave me literature and told me to consider it and to call him.

My therapist has been advocating for surgical interventions for me for a long time.   Hopefully he will be pleased with this new direction and won't be upset that I missed my work out tonight.  (I did my exercises after I got home...)

Personally, I am so glad to  havew an option on the table--I plan to call him and tell him that I want to go with the TKR on my left knee--and get a date set.   Sylvia
