So glad things are moving forward. The rolling walkers with the seat are great, but can be hard to lift if you have back problems, you are right about the need for a servant! Still, I was so glad I had mine these last two weeks. And sometimes sitting on it rather than in a chair is more comfortable for me because it is higher up and easierfor me to get up and off. I've been stuck in bed, barely able to walk due to my back. No one is doing anything except I'm taking gobs of hydrocodone that obviouslyisn't working. I think I will have to have more surgery. Right now, I'm ready to do it myself. They are sending me to physical therapy and I can't walk. Its stupid. I hurt so so bad. I asked to be referred to pain management but the ortho guy doesn't want me to go till I see him again, then theres the holidays. I'm really doing bad with this. I wonder if it isn't somehow related to the autoimmune, I mean it flared up after I stopped pred and just won't let up.
Well, enough about my stupid stuff. I"m hoping you will have a happy holiday. My son broke his toe and he has been driving me to PT. They told me they won't do anything unless I become paralyzed, then I get whatever neuro happens to be on call, otherwise it's months of this.
I have the sameproblem as you, they say, use the walker,I can't lift it in the dang car. Then they say maybe a wheel chair butit hurts as muh to sit as it does to stand. I swear, I want to hang upside down. I want to get massage therapy ordered but don't know if medicare will pay for it. Wouldn't that be great?
Well, I wish you a happy holiay if I don't get on again, it hurts to ue the computer. I do keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope everything is going okay with you and weather is not awful and things go good with the docs.
