I have been attending physio at my local hospital every couple of weeks since October but yesterday my Physiotherapist informed me that I have used up all of my NHS sessions, so will no longer be able to attend, and he has signed me off, despite originally being told they would be available long term!
They were my lifeline, keeping me fit, mobile and motivated to exercise. I am shell shocked and worried about how to cope without them in the future especially as everyone commented on how well I was doing when I was having them regularly. I have tried to arrange private sessions but there seems to be a lack of physiotherapists in my area, and apparently the NHS are not able to recommend any type of therapy practitioners to me, thus leaving me high and dry! I don't relish the thought of starting again with someone new anyway!
I am feeling lost and abandoned, totally demotivated and actually just plain angry about it at the moment! I think my physiotherapist was trying to say that there was no more he could for me and the NHS can't fund long term care for repetitive treatment. I can only do very basic exercises so that would be classed as repetitive
