Ok, now I am going to rant again about that prolo doc. I'm sorry, I don't really expect anything and I think I've figured out how to handle her, but I just need a rant.
I will be going back for more prolo next week. I saw her again and by the end of it started just out and out lying to her because she doesn't listen. First she asked about how I did with the prolo and I said there was some bruising but other than that it wasn't bad. She asks me how many bruises? Two? Ten? I say, well, I could see around 5, maybe, but it's pretty hard to see back there. She says, "Well, if you can't see them then how do you know you had bruises?" To which I reply, no, I could see 5 or so, but I didn't count them!
She accused me of not doing my exercises and once again said I was too weak in the core. Her evidence: I said I had been sore and hurting after cleaning the house, and then she asked if my quads were sore and I said no. Apparently the fact that my quads weren't sore proves that my core is weak. I would love to challenge her to a test of strength. I am sure I would win. I spend 2-3 hours a day exercising! I am sure that my sore hands, feet, and shoulders are also proof of my weak core along with my back and hips...not! Anyway, I didn't argue with her. I just laughed at myself right along with her as she laughed in my face.
But then I just started lying and agreeing with whatever she wants me to think and say. She asks, did I take Tylenol? Tylenol does absolutely nothing for me at all. A couple of times, I took something stronger because the past two weeks have been agony, but I just said yes, I took Tylenol, twice. I figure, in the end, all I want from her is prolo so if she doesn't believe in HMS and thinks my problems are my own fault, thinks I am lazy, and keeps sending me for more physio, it really doesn't matter. Who cares what she thinks of me anyway? I worry a little about things going in my file but whatever.
The only bad side effect of this is I feel like I am not allowed to take my pain meds. I am back to feeling like a drama queen with a made up problem who just wants to take pills. So I have been rather in pain lately. I don't usually take them on a daily basis but probably do take them 2-3 times a week and more if I need to. I don't know. It's all sort of frustrating, but I guess I just have to suck it up. I have stoped telling my OH how I feel and I think he is happier for it too, and it's probably good for our relationship, so maybe that's all for the best.
