Happy Holidays Everyone
I went to the ortho office like a compliant patient to meet the ortho doc that my prev. ortho doc referred me to within the practice.
They took 1 xray of left leg and then I waited to be called. Eventually I was brought to a small cubicle and then I waited again. 20 minutes later the ortho doc made his apperance in my cubicle. He shook my hand and talked to the folder in his hands or to the xray view box. Not alot of eye contact with me. That doesnt sit well with me. He handled my affected leg but never asked me to walk or mention to me about straightening my tibia to the right. I asked about the implant being nickel free ,he replied than a titanium with no nickel would be the way to go. I am no hurry to get it done with him. Im looking at September to have it done after racing season would be done.
I asked everyone if the doc would take a medicare rate for my surgery and no one knew. So I left a msg for his nurse to call me and tell me. Also there is an outstanding balance with them of over $2000 and W/C should have paid that so I called my lawyer and left a msg with the paralegal to get it paid by W/C and not out of my medicare acct. i wont stand for that!!
I need to ask his nurse about the air compression leg form that squezes the fluid out of your leg to be ordered for me since I have damaged lymph nodes and I have lymph edema in my leg.
If I could drink a glass of wine I would partake and invite my family along to do it with me. Just pull up a chair and I will pour you a glass. Sit and talk and have a complaint session.
Sorry it was so long but I needed to vent.
Thanks for listening
