This is my experience with a so-called professional.At the time of my first consultation before surgery, he couldn't have been more sweet and helpful. Of course this phoniness , as I later found out was to get me to agree to surgery, which I did. After the surgery, he couldn't have cared less. I had EPF surgery which is supposed to have a very short recovery time. Well, it is now 10 weeks later and I still have a LOT of pain at the surgical site.
I have been back to the doctor four times, complaining about the inability to as of yet put my full weight on my foot and about the amount of swelling and hardness in my heel, He has yet to even examine it or get close enough to touch it. He just writes down a few comments on my chart and sets up another appointment for me.
Yesterday was the limit! After I voiced my concern again, he told me to take off my shoes and socks and then proceeded to have me almost run down the hall in his office area, yelling at me to go faster and faster, berating me and telling me that I was acting like an old woman. I'm 35. What the point of this was, I don't know other than to prove how sadistic he is.
The outcome of this latest visit was to once again hand me another prescription for anti-inflammatories and to tell me to come back in a week. Needless to say, I will not be returning . I will let time take care of this.
Has anyone else had this slow healing experience and what was the outcome? I do feel progress, but very slowly. Am I just being impatient?
