PT today

Thursday, September 19, 2013

I went to PT today and did several exercises. I also canceled my PT for next 2 weeks, until I get my new socket. I am having too much pain when I walk on this one. This is something expected, but it still doesn't make it feel any better. Usually the first test socket lasts about 3 months, but my leg shrank faster then most do. My insurance will only pay for a new socket every 2 months. So, I have to wait until after October 1 to have the new one made.

    *sigh* That seems like forever. Wish you could stuff it with cotton batting or old quilts or chamois cloths or something in the meantime.

Hang in there my friend.

Wow! That's great. Happy anniversary.

    The prosthesis I use makes the prosthetic at his clinic. I will go in on October 2 and get my prosthetic on October 4. Scott Sabolich is a very well known prosthesis. By the way October 2 is Martha and I 43rd wedding anniversery

    Maybe they can per-order it and put a retro date on the paperwork ,, I guess until then it is upper body workouts, ,, you can never be too strong unless you are a skunk!

    Makes sense to wait for PT until you have the right size socket.

    I knew from your previous blog, that the insurance company wanted to wait until October 1st. Can you order the new socket to get it October 1st instead of ordering it Oct. 1st and getting it 1-2 weeks later? That way, you don't waste any time since you're doing so well.

I am glad you decided to wait and not continue to hurt. God bless you, Steve, as you continue in this journey. emoticon

Love, Chelsea

    I have a friend that has gone through that, it's been two years since her amputation of part of her left leg below the knee. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Good luck with getting your new socket and getting back to your PT.
