I hate medical 'professionals '

you talk to one and it 'you are healling well, time to move o to the next stage'

Talk to some one a week later and 'you are not healling, next stage is months away'

 

A month ago i was ready to get fitted for a prostetic leg, now i am being told that they wont start until it is 100% healed and there is no swelling

 

I feel the goal posts are constantly being moved away from me

That's pretty shitty. Is it the same person telling you the 2 different stories about how your progress is going or is it a case of 2 people disagreeing on what is being said?

Sucks for sure... recovery roadmaps are often best case bullshit.

you shouldn't be hatin' on them for rolling with the punches

 

there's no way to fit a workable prosthesis till the leg has settled into its final form, and that means the healing needs to be adequate, which means no swelling and no broken areas

 

 

if they fit the stump when it's "bigger", the prosthesis will be loose when it's made, and it will rub on the stump, potentially causing ulcers, and you know how that goes

 

if you like the bits you've got left, you need to respect the need to move cautiously

 

 

we don't call you patient for nothing
