Today I received a letter from the said Dr from the Fibro clinic. He listed my ailments as Fibro Syndrome Osteoarthritis Previous CFS Diabetes type 11 and persistently low Platelet count!
I read the letter and thought wish I could send him a reply!!
He said I had been seen at another hospital for Orthopaedic Surgery who confirmed I had bad knees and needed a replacement of both,Said she had a steroid injection in her knee with good result. Her knee joints appear to be stable and she can move them from 0 to 120 degrees Her hip rotation is good.(he never touched my hip. And I cant walk but he forgot to mention that! He then went on to say he has refered me to a coping skills program to teach me Exercise tolerance I have given her a book to do exercises from as she needs to strengthen her muscles due to knee problems.....Er I cannot Walk or swim or drive but he never even mentioned my fibro!
He did say I had Persistently low platelets and why had my Dr not let him know? I have only had them low for the last 6 months,and my Dr is keeping a check on it.
He seemed more interested in the fact that in his opinion there was not a lot wrong with my legs, that losing weight and doing exercise would not cure !! He was so rude I never want to see him again.
Have any of you encountered this with your Fibro Consultant?
I still have not had any Physio so not amused ! ;-(
Gentle hugs (((((((((((((((((((((((((( ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
