So today was a BIG doctor day. Lauren and I had 4 appointments today. First one was at 8 with Dr. Franklin who is Lauren's Physiatrist. What's a physiatrist? That is a doctor who has a specialty in nerve,muscle and bone. They treat the injuries or illness that effect how you move. Dr Franklin reviewed where Lauren was, her pain levels any questions and we also looked at Lauren's medicines to make sure we had some good plans in place to get off as much as possible with the exception of Tylenol and the nerve pain medicine Neurontin.
There was also a lot of discussion of the next couple weeks and the importance of getting the incision site to stay scare tissue free. The only way to accomplish this is to massage the heck out of that area. This and techniques to desensitize that area will be crucial to continue with a successful prosthetic fit!
