Finally I’m hopeful that I will get the PT necessary to put my back together
the way it was before the terrible terrible Dr. Im (Kaiser Permanente) cut my ureter in
a routine kidney stone procedure and laid me out for several months.
(He was awful for a few other reason, like NO doesn’t mean NO with him.
He is frankly lucky I was strapped into stirrups or he’d have had sore balls.
I was not so lucky. I was not anesthetized and he did not care.)
I’ve had a conflict in PT care between what is good to heal my ureter/bladder
from the yoga and Feldenkrais exercises I do that keep my back strong.
Finally a brilliant PT is helping me to combine them.
This will eventually get me off drugs — and THAT is my goal.
I take 1/2 to 1 1/2 percosets and a muscle relaxer daily… NOT good!
If I don’t, I am immobile!
