so I leave for camp tomorrow, and as such I had to see a bunch of doctors this last week to make sure that I was healthy, and all ready to go. I saw 5 doctor in all, one on wensday and 4 on thursday.
On wensday I saw my pediatrician, he checked me over and pronounced me to be the most healthy he has seen me in a long time. I was really happy and pleased. He told me to be carefull at camp and to have fun.
On thursday I saw the following docs,
Wound Clinic: They cauterized my wounds shut, but it didn't work. It actually made it worse. The skin slid right off like it does at the beginning of these things, but only in the areas they burned, so I know it was from the cauterizing, and they actually ended up making the wounds bigger. So yeah it was real helpfull, but it was a chance that had to be taken.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation: She watched me walk, checked my hypermobility, checked my flexibility, checked my strenghth and told me she thought I might need custom made orthotics but to check with my orthopedist.
Orthopedist: Told me no on the orthotics, but that I need to wear my right ankle brace at all times when I am not in my house, for forever or at least untill he retires ( he added jokingly after I protested some). Not too happy about that but I don't have a choice, he can't risk another injury like my knee. He told my that my knee cap didn't for right that there is some disformation of the joint where it meets top of the bones in my lower leg and this is because of my hypermobility syndrome and causes exterme hypermobility. He said he wouldn't be suprised if this happens again or if I dislocate my knee.
Pulmanologist: Told me my asthma is better but not all the way back to normal which is how I feel. Gave me all the meds I need for camp and told me to call if I have problems, otherwise to come back in August.
So yeah it was a long day. 4 doctors starting at 8 in the morning, and the last ending at 4 in the after noon, so thats 8 hours of doctor apps straight... hmm wonder if I went insane that day, it sure felt like it lol.
