Binney, and All You that have supported me!
I have an appointment with an LE therapist, Monday August 27th at 10AM.
She is out of network, but my insurance pays out of network, except, instead of $40 co-pay each visit it will be $55. I can afford $15 more....just not several times a week, hopefully.
My dr's nurse called me this morning and said the dr agrees that I should see a therapist. She gave me some names and numbers and it has taken me all afternoon to get it all done.
I have no idea who she is certified with. I had so much to ask and explain that I forgot to ask that. (She cannot be as bad as that last one).....and I will know right away if she knows what she is doing.
The only thing I know is my nurse said another of their patients went to this lady and had great results.
I am so thankful and so hopeful this lady is the real thing.
I feel kind of bad because my insurance wanted to know why I was not going to the one in network. I told them. Then I had to give them her name.
BUT.....my nurse told me AGAIN today that they are getting a LOT of complaints about this therapist.
The nurse told me to be frank about my reason for not going back to her, and added that she would help me in any way she can.....but she was not allowed to say anything against that therapist.
Sorry but I just told the honest truth.
Thanks again to all of you, and I will let you know how it goes.
Meanwhile, my arm is still about the same......not any worse at all ....but still swollen and dark pink.
PS......The MRI contrast did a number on me. Headache, nausea and vertigo. Headache was the day of....nausea and dizzy the next day.
Headache and nausea resolved....but still a bit dizzy!
Anyone else have this?
