Bend and Stretch..

I'm telling you..she's trying to kill me.  She bent my fingers inward to approximate a fist, and I stood UP! My gosh that was p-a-i-n-f-u-l!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then, bent my wrist back and front..tears formed in the corner of my eyes.  I never made a sound but intakes of breath that sounded like the hissing it was!  HURT!!!!!  Man, that session hurt!  I had 2 Tylenol an hour before..to no avail.  She said she had to get my fingers working.  I have them half way able to close..and the tendons were screaming when  she stretched them.  The mashing and spreading of the tendons back of my wrist..oh, man.

So, that was my morning.  It's all to the good though.  :-(

  1. When you can form a fist, we say punch her. :-P

  2. I think maybe physical therapists ought to have to experience it for themselves in order to qualify - break a wrist, spend 6 weeks in a cast, and then have therapy.

  6. My heart goes out to you Carole. I am sorry you have to go through so much pain, in order to get better. Wish there was something I could do to make things easier for you.

    Thank you for your visit to my blog today, and for sharing in my joy, with these precious grandchildren of mine. :)

    Well I had better get some sleep as I have to be up at 6 a.m and won't get back home until 6p.m. Thank God Friday is almost here.

    Take care Carole and I do pray as I work, so just know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hugs , Dianne :)

  7. OUCH. I cringed just reading about your experience. I'm glad you are taking it positively, though. Try not to punch her. :)

  8. Having watched several people go through pt I can imagine your agony. Wish I could console you some Carole but that won't do as well as prayer so I'll do that for sure.

  9. At least now you can rest for a few days before she "kills" you again.

  11. When I first began PT the intake person sent me out the door and down the hall to see Bobbi and she would take me through my session. Expecting to meet a petite little blonde haired beach bunny I was puzzled by the 3 or 4 men sitting in chairs in the corridor, a couple of which I swear were close to tears. Then my name was called and I found out why......they had already met Bobbi who appeared to be a refugee from the Soviet Olympic Weight Lifting Team (Super Heavy Weight Division). She was at least 7 feet tall, 250 lbs of solid muscle and M-E-A-N! I thought I was in pain when I got there but I was begging for the rescue squad and a couple buckets of morphine by the time she really got going.

    When I got home I called the doctor's office, explained that I was seriously considering climbing up on the roof across the street from Bobbi's office window with my deer rifle and demanded a referral to a PT facility not operated by de Sade Associates, Inc. ..... and I got one, too:-)

  12. Gracious, Carole, I'd ask for a good pain pill to endure the rest of it. Well, I would because that's just brutal.

  13. Oh gosh, it sounds really really painful!! I'll be scared to have such therapy. But I'm glad you got to brush Admiral san's beautiful fur. I hope the painful session will be over soon!!
