dievca finally saw her Orthopedic Surgeon after traveling. Apparently, she arrived at the office after a number of older, non-athletic patients. The Doctor was thrilled with his work and dievca’s range of motion, ability to walk, etc. He didn’t think she had swelling, but he didn’t bother to look at her other knee to compare either…. When he said, “I don’t think you need Physical Therapy”, dievca nearly jacked him up against the wall.
(Side note: we all know dievca as Master’s — this is an example of why dievca needs to “switch” modes to submissive. Growing up with older brothers in a blunt family has taught her to stand up for herself – no problem.)
dievca was polite but emphatic that PT was in her best interests.
(“What f*cking planet are you on?” – was thought but not said.)
she got the script and started this week – her objectives being: getting the quadricep that atrophied to fire, getting the knee swelling down to be fitted for a custom unloader brace, to be able to walk up and down stairs, to make sure both knees are working effectively.
Look, your dievca is amazing (sometimes) – but a PT will help (a lot).
