Update on Mrs. D

Finally got to a specialist on the 4th,by which time she was crippled with pain and in a wheel chair. No real pain meds for 3 days, all the aspirin she wanted.

Anyway her primary mis-read the x-ray, no hip fracture her hips are structurally sound. Slipped disk. Ortho guy gave her a 30 day supply (120 tabs) of an effective pain reliever and another 30 day supply of a super muscle relaxer.

Both worked, after two days of an effective pain med, and muscle relaxer she was walking again.

Now, she's well on her way to recovery, pretty close to normal. Ortho guy wants her to start physical therapy to strengthen her core muscles to try and prevent this in the future.

BTW, she didn't end up addicted, she stopped taking the muscle relaxer and is taking one pain pill at night to sleep.

7. Hope her healing goes well.

Misread an X-ray as a non-existent hip fracture? Sheesh!

8. Primary Care doctors are Jacks of All Trades and very rarely masters of any

Probably had no business diagnosing the ailment from the beginning. Shoulda referred her to an orthopedic doctor from the beginning.
