Well, well, they added OT to my PT schedule today so they must know Medicare will eventually pay them for the services they are providing me for these 8 sessions! I sure did need it with my arm and hand I guess I sort of let myself go more than I figured.
I'll get back on track and figure out a way to stand up from sitting without trying to push up with my good arm, that's killing my shoulder for sure using it to help me stand up. My knees are so bad already and the injections don't last long as they should. They hurt me so bad I could cry sometimes. I have to be careful where I sit down or I can not get up by myself.
My scooter seat is the right height I'm just having trouble standing up from a regular low seat of 22 inches which is standard.
<<<<<<A Big Update to my Blog today!! 3 October 2013>>>>
I'm in worse shape physically with my legs, knees, and ankles we discovered in therapy today. I may have to contact VA to find the right solution to fix the problem in my case!! The physical doctor was summoned to my side. We talked and had some agreements about what is next in my case!
"I'm in dire need of knee replacements." Yes both knees! The injections I have had is not working on the problems in my knees. The older I get the worse it will be until I'm not able to stand from any sitting position without having them replaced. Yes both knees!
Well I got the weekend to discuss it with my wife then contact the VA to get their opinions on what I should do! They wanted to replace one before but not both! One side of my body is paralyzed head to toe! I'm thinking if this doesn't solve my situation I could end up in a WC again!! Right now my mind says "No way!"
Then I must speak with my arthritis doctor that does the injection for his opinions in my case!! I got to do something or have something done!! I don't want to be house bound the rest of my life!
Any suggestions anybody??
