Well today I was sitting in the day surgery unit waiting for hubby to get the all clear to come home (he had an infection 3 weeks ago and they wanted to be sure he was peeing okay) and my mobile rang. It was physio at the same hospital. They had a cancellation for this afternoon, so I took it.
I was seen by a physio that specialises in pain. I felt listened to, he examined my hands and feet. Also looked at my shoulders. I came away with some exercises for hands, feet and shoulder. A follow-up in two weeks, when he will look more to the sleep and mood problems of pain. And then he suggests hydrotherapy.
It has made me positive today. I feel that someone does listen.
He also suggests that my GP contacts the community occupational therapy for home assistance.
So after sleeping tablet tonight, I will make GP appointment tomorrow. Also contact my union rep.
With positive thoughts for the first time in ages.
