no good back to square one got an appt this afternoon cant walk without sharp pinching pain not good yikes what now
well i did it good this time i have retorn the labrum go see the surgeon next monday i didnt want this not one bit
Aw Saraship that is awful I hope they can help you out as fast as possible, and sadly these things really do take time to heal from.
I have been on a break of physio and this week while pains reduced and no more flare ups, i've started to introduce some again. But doing it super slowly this time and even if i feel i can do more, i'm not until the next day. Bit frustrating but it is paying off, as i'm healing faster from each day, and although it hurts after physio i recover from it quicker than before, and ready to do the next days set. Whereas i'd do the 3 sets in one day then be so sore i'd have to miss 3 days, so it's better to do it super slow.
Got a tribunal date for my ESA appeal, it's where they work out your state to see if you are fit for work. I got 0points in the first stage, then at DWP appeal i got 6points and first tribunal they white washed it with 27 points and simply said why are you here? how did they fail you twice? well that gave us a 6month grace then we were thrown back into the system, assesment stage gave me 0points again and this time the DWP appeal also gave me 0 points (must add here the wording on the descriptors that we won with last time has been changed) No longer is it how far can you walk without pain, it's how far can you move without stopping? this then implies if you are in a wheelchair, and don't stop by 50 feet then you are free to work! Bear in mind 34 people in Scotland alone have died!! while being declared fit for work.
I'm all for those that don't work and have defrauded the system to be called into question, But when the media and government call all disabled claimants scroungers and cheats i have a problem with that!! Look into #SpartacusReport and join in the appeals to the Royal Assent. This Welfare reform is harming more than it helps, All disabled child will have their money stopped as Adults? Why they still need it. Please read http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.com/ and see how underhand this system really is, I can't believe the public want this and are all for it?
At the end of all this, I will return to work and I will get better, but what of those that wont, or lose their battle for life during this humiliating and distressing process, pls spare a thought for them.
Deb as you know I am appalled and sickened by this! You also know that today I got my ATOS Medical Report back and that is full of lies as well. Grrrr!!
As for the public wanting the system changed etc, etc, it would be different if any of them suddenly became unable to work through no fault of there own!! Then where would they be.? Yes up sh$ts creek without a paddle. SUCKS the while damned system
Thanks Paignton I truly believe this system and the NHS bill will be the death of the Country, we are following Amercian Systems that have notoriously failed there? To get out of a recession you must spend, But here we are removing people from work, then for their benefits they must work voluntary. Surely the employers will think why pay for staff when i can get free labour and the government will pay me for the trouble, win win situation.
I don't disagree with a lot of what you are saying, and I don't agree the system needs an overhaul, but I also acknowlegde that there are lots of people that claim sickness benefits that are fit for work in some capacity or other, and its down to these fraudulent people that the truely disabled have to be so heavily scrutinised. I hold my hands up, as someone who has struggled to stay employed over the last few years, I do welcome a system that is trying to weed out the cheats. I chose to try and keep working for my personal reasons, because as you stated in your post I knew eventually I would get better and be able to work and I wanted to keep my job for when I reached that stage-evven though there were many times I felt/was told by my employers I wasn't fit to work. This decision has now paid off for me, and I am glad I made the choices I did, but that's just me. I also think that working keeps people emotionally healthy, a theory backed by a good friend of mine, confined to a wheelchair after being hit by a drunk driver and paralysed in her 20s, she works full time, though in great pain at times and is a true inspiration. I often think if she can work why should others claim they can't! This by no means includes everyone as there are many many deserving people who are entitled to disabilty benefits and deserve them, but I am all for a system that is trying to sort out the ones who shouldn't get it-though its flaws obviously need addressing.I also agree with regular checks as (unless medically proven otherwise)lots of peoples conditions can quickly alter.
Sorry if you don't agree.I am also one in favour of voluntary working whilst on benefits, its a great way of building up a cv again and opening up opportunities for employment.
On a more positive note, I'm glad things are improving now for you and that you are getting to grips with physio-slow and steady wins the race.xx
Please excuse typos , am typing on my phone.
Debbie, sorry to hear you are having so much troubles getting all of that figured out. I sincerely hope that things work out in your favour. It is good to hear that you are doing a little better after having stepped back from PT a little bit. How are you feeling these days?
Sara, that does not sound good. I do wonder though, how do they know that you have already retorn it and it isn't inflammation and a flare-up? I know it could most definitely be retorn, but it is so early to tell what the heck is going on in there and an MRI would prolly not show much either. How are you feeling now? I hope that things have settled down for you!
On my end, not much is new. I can waddle around without crutches in the house for 3/4 of the day then back on two crutches. I use both outside all of the time. I also have to return back to school on Monday. I am supposed to do 12 hour days in the hospital! I HAVE to return since I don't have a single day off for the next year and a half. Let's hope those with whom I am working are understanding of my situation. sigh.
stressed is desserts spelled backwards...coincidence? I think not.
I hope you do ok when you go back next week. Please take things as easy as you possibly can, and get as much rest as possible outside school. I understand how important it is for you to return to school and hope it all works out for you and they do understand the situation you are in.
Let us know how it goes for you.
Debbie, Please don't think any of my opinions in the above post were directed at you or anyone else on here, as that is obviously not the case, its just that I have very little patience towards people who abuse the system and give the rest of the people who are genuine a bad name and can understand why there are many people calling out for the situation to change and be tightened up. Those that are proved to need it will always have my full support.
Hope things are going better for you.
That is what the Spartacus report about, we all agree the system needs an overhaul and tightening up. But with the Government using #workfare where everyone has to work for their benefits (even if you have a month left to live!) is not the way to do it, especially because your removing working people out of paid work for free work, Tesco,TK Maxx, Primark Matalan etc all have said why pay staff when they can be paid for taking on workfare staff for 2 yrs for free (this has caused a massive stink!) Voluntary work is fabulous as long as your not forced to do it, and taking it from the people that want to and need to do it. I do think most people would benefit from working mentally and emotionally, I think of the mentally ill and the seriously ill, so we are on the same page Kate. Medical checks definitely don't disagree as long as done by Medically qualified people, NOT a software company that has NO qualifications medically or otherwise.
I think for me I have light at the end of the tunnel, if I was in work (not self employed) before surgery, then I think it's easier to return to work as you have a rapport with employers, and they understand and are bit more supportive. Whereas If I'm looking for work now, with physio and hydro a few times a week who in their right mind would employ me? With the Left Hip being so amazing, and rarely giving me any problems now, I feel this is the last leg of my journey at least for a fair few years. So I know I'm going back to work, I just feel for those that can't and don't survive this process.
Update on me, Not too bad really the Knee has finally settled down after a few weeks of forced rest (hardest thing ever to do) and now I've managed to get my physio done everyday slowly and not going overboard. I have started on the stationary bike in 5 mins sets I can just about do 3 sets overall the day on top of the 20 min physio.
HC I really hope they understand at school and sympathise with you, and give you some leeway with sitting and walking etc... although your recovery sounds good hun.
Sarasbadhip Hopefully it's not retorn and i hope the pain settles down for you soon, Try icing and resting as much as possible, as it sounds like flare up pain which we are all familiar with xx
