I saw my surgeons PA yesterday. She was very happy with my incision, degree of swelling, and degree of mobility of the knee. After numerous exercises, its been decided to let me start PT. The pt will be focused on electric stimulation of my quad that still is not firing. The Dr still is insisting on no range of motion in my knee.
They did give me a paper for my pm saying that my last script from them was for tramadol and that they won't be giving me anymore meds. I also got the surgical report. I delivered both to their respective drs. The other orthos nurse assured me that he would look it over as soon he can. My pms receptionist said she doesn't think he will see me at all while I'm still seeing the surgeon, even with the paper!!I had her write him a note and I will be calling Monday morning.
My knee is not my only source of pain. I've had arthritis in all of my joints for over 20 years. My back is in terrible shape. I can't sleep because my pain is unmanaged. I'm losing weight because the pain keeps me nauseated. I'm miserable. If my pm won't see me, I don't know what I'll do.
