2 hours after the appointment:
Well I had one of the best orthopedic doctor in the business and he said I need one more shot, a day of rest and then maybe surgery if this shot doesn’t work in a year or so.
I did FINALLY get some x-rays done, no spurs, calcium deposits or cancer, that’s good…it only took…2 YEARS!!!!
I went through with the shot of cortisone and some other stuff he called a anti inflammatory cocktail. I’m starting the stretching exercises…AGAIN. It felt amazing for about an hour, then back to the same pain. The doctor said it will take the shot 4 to 6 weeks to take full effect, if not, then we can take the next step, if this doesn’t work…AGAIN! Anybody see the movie GroundHog Day? I think I’m in the sequel.
I would love to have a doctor or heath insurance agent come into my work and treat them like they treat me. It’ll go something like this…
Me “Can I help you?”
Client X “Yeah I have a leak under my sink.”
Me “I’m gonna give you this duct tape for $45, it should work.”
Client X “Thanks”
(Client X comes back)
Client X “Hey that duct tape didn’t work on my sink, it’s still dripping.”
Me “o.k., here’s some more duct tape and a bucket, Wrap more duct tape around the pipe, if it doesn’t work the bucket will catch the water,when the bucket is full of water empty it, the bucket will cost $100.”
Client X ” Well shouldn’t I get a new pipe?”
Me “No, you haveta wait to see if this works…come back in 4 months and maybe I’ll get ya some pipes.”
Yep, in a perfect world…
No pain, see if this is going to work, time to do streching…yep still no pain.
Really want to shoot my bow, but don’t want to push it, need to wait another month for that, docs orders. Still have a little numbness in my fingers through.
No pain, hope this isn’t masking the pain…need to write about something else…Duct tape rocks, hope it sticks for a while!!!!
Day 5…. Had a busy day at work, I think I over did it, have a slight pain today, not where the tennis elbow is though,…need to trust the doctors.
Funny comparison not so funny situation – hope you get better soon!
