New Doctor today

So I went and saw my newest doctor today. I really like him, he is trained in a very special type of Sports Therapy where they are able to do soft tissue manipulation to release entrapped nerves. It's called Active Release Technique.

The first session was brutal, but I anticipate most of them to be. He thinks he can fix it, but said he needs to research what nerves are causing the pain. I will see him every third day, as possible, until either it is fixed or we move. I go back Friday, but for now I am sore and I hurt, but maybe this is my answer.....I am praying very hard that it is. The patient before me is training for the Olympics, so if she trusts him, I think maybe I will be in good hands. He is going to sit down with my Neurosurgeon and discuss what he is doing. He is also going to speak with a few colleagues to get some input.

My Neurosurgeon said that I was his most challenging case, my new doctor said I may very well take that title with him too.

Is that a good sign? :D


  1. Wow, a doctor who is willing to talk to other doctors is a good sign. Hope all goes well.

  2. Your post about "life passing you by" sounds so familiar. I felt that way upon separating from my husband. I simply could not be "in" life anymore and I had a toddler and a newborn at the time.

    The good news is that it will pass. Change is the only thing we can be certain of. All you can do is take one day at a time and make it til the next day. Maybe even take it one hour at a time.

    Let others help you. This will allow you to be stronger and get better sooner. Your children may or may not understand but it will make them stronger too.

    Look forward to the positive future ahead of you. And the new doctor sounds very promising!!


  3. Good news, indeed, about the new doc, ASW. I think the new guy's response IS a good sign!
