Ok so I’ve been attending work conditioning per doctors orders because on the last visit he said I should be good as new in a matter of weeks.
Well guess what?
1 1/2 weeks ago while doing my program my wrist began to swell and the therapist discontinued the work circuit portion of my program and said I need to be re-evaluated in a few days.
Yesterday was the day it happened and they told me they needed to contact the doctor with their findings.
I was contacted by the scheduling department at the therapy center and they said the doctor had ordered a Functional Capacity Evaluation to see what my permanent restrictions will be.
I am assuming this means after 4 surgeries and hundreds of hours of therapy I’m now being told “Hey guy, this is the end of hope you will return to a normal life”
Perhaps I am just jumping the gun, but I know the amount of pain I am having and the fact that I can’t even pick up my daughter without scooping her up with my forearm under her underarm makes me feel like I’m being thrown under the bus!
I’m not trying to find a way out of work but what am I supposed to do?
I am good at what I do (despite what others may think) and I have always had employment that required just as much use of my hands as my brain.
I guess my ping-pong career is out the window too! 😦
I’m trying to keep a positive attitude over this entire ordeal, but everything around me is changing and none of it in a good way it seems.
I know things could be so much worse than they are and for that thankfulness is in my heart.
Updates to follow.
