The boyfriend got off the phone with workers comp a little bit ago and he texted me to let me know that they will finally let him see the podiatrist that is down the street from us! That is such great news because they wanted him to go to San Francisco to see one which was going to be such a headache. The one down the street from us is a workers comp specialist and from what I've read does great work and is a wonderful dr to go to. I went to their website and printed out the new patient forms to fill out and made an online request for an appointment so they will be calling shortly to schedule an appointment date and time. I really hope we can get this ankle injury figured out soon since he's been injured and in pain for almost a year now. He was going to a physical therapist but she said she wouldn't see him any further until he went to a podiatrist because she wanted to make sure her program wasn't hindering him in any way. He has good days and bad days... some days are so bad he's in pain and can't walk without limping/hobbling around. It's so bad that he has to use a cane to walk a lot of the time and the worker comp dr won't take him off of work :( He's at a job where he's on his feet 90-95% of the time of an 8 hour day which takes a huge toll on his poor ankle. Fingers crossed we can get this injury resolved and healed so he can start exercising again. He's able to do some weight machines but cardio is out of the question.
