Ours not to Question

Friday, May 24, 2013

The rigmarole of Doctors and their Fundas has once more begun spinning out--and with apologies to Lord Tennyson it is "Ours not to question why---Ours to hear and meekly comply" is the order of the day!!Luckily for me, belonging to a Family which is related to a wide spectrum of well known Mumbai Doctors is a boon--one or the other is always there to consult!!This time it was the Orthopaedic Specialist---and and though the Doctor was tied up luckily an appointment was made available by my sister -in-law Suhas at the nth hour!!As I hobbled in to consult him the first thing he remarked on was my obesity.Well I've been plataeued for many years now---and now am resigned to the fact that Obesity is here to stay!!
Briskly going about bending my legs as if I was a Ragdoll and poking and probing them mercilessly he cheerfully informed me that I was reasonably healthy for my number of Ailments--and advised an X-Ray and a Blood Test to check my D2-D3 levels as well as my B12 level as well.As suspected it turned up that I have severe D2-D3 deficiency while my B12 just clears the mark.Result?An extra tablet at night for B12---and weekly Sachets of D-2-D3 medication.Also Physiotherapy,Sonography and Diathermy as well.So today was the first day of the Sonography---quite a pleasant surprise in fact---the main Pain point being gently massaged in circular motion for about 30 minutes.Helped ease the pain considerably and encouraged by that I quickly sat up--only to be admonished to be gentler? with my poor Body---so here we are again once more--The Body versus Me--even though we co-exist in the same shell!!
The admonishment led to a mild Lecture--I'm not to climb the Stairs too often,before getting out of bed each morning there are certain excersizes that I have to perform to ease the overnight stiffness,standing on my legs for a long time without a break is a no-no and holding any posture too long is not to be allowed.Not just that I cannot walk continuously as I am used to doing---even my Walks need breaks every 5-10 minutes!!So while I'm relatively young my Body is ageing fast---and is using such painful black mailing tactics to get it's own way!!!That's why I say Folks--listen to your Body when it refuses to do something and change your ways early for the benefit of the Body you live in--or like me one has to pay the Price!!

    Trust me I feel your pain.I tend to do battle with my body regularly and the latest indignity thrown at me is I have to use crutches.Which my doctor assures me is not bad for someone who was supposed to be in a wheelchair years ago but it still feels like a betrayal of the shell when the mind is still willing to me !!!!

    emoticon and Thanks for the reminder... need it every now and then because we do tend to take our bodies for granted way more often than we should and subject it to all kinds of tortures on the planet... from over stuffing it to going on Crash diets and what not ...for all the wrong reasons!

    Take care!
