Alison : second opinion
Diary entry posted Thu 3:00pm 4 November 2004

I had an appointment with a new OS yesterday for a second opinion and he has said that he does not believe I need surgery. His explanation is that, while he would have done it in the first place, he would not do it six weeks into my recovery. He thinks my x-rays look fine for where I am in the recovery timeline and that the other doctor was jumping the gun. While I obviously like the idea of not having surgery, I also felt a great deal more confident and comfortable with this doctor and will continue to see him through the remainder of my treatement, which is likely to be another three months or more.

I go back to see him in two weeks for a new cast that will enable me to put my feet on the ground. In addition, he is advocating for the possibility of ultrasound stimulation. I have to talk to my insurance company about what they will be able to cover.

Anyway, I feel better about the long term after seeing this guy. I know that this is all going to take forever, but I also know that, while everything takes too long and too much effort, there is very little that I can't do.
