Okay I am back, it took FOREVER and we only saw someone for llike 10 minutes. They said the xray showed it was starting to heal , the one little piece of bone was still out of place but shouldn't cause any problems. Still showed some shortening but not nothing that needed surgery. Said they would take her cast off and if she felt pain they would recast it, well they took it off she supposedly felt no pain so they put it in a splint. To me the arm still did not look right. Told us she needed to wear the splint for 2 weeks and she could take it off at night to take a bath and she needed to move her wrist around and fingers cause right now they are super stiff. Well....... when I got home they called me back and said she needed to wear the splint the full 4 weeks till we come back. Her appt is September 17th(dunno what I am gonna do about that , just have to see when baby comes). Said she needed to make sure she was not rough housing, jumping on the trampoline,riding a bike, or ANYTHING like that. so they must of saw something that changed their mind.
well... when dh came in and saw her arm he said it also looked weird to him and that it still looked broken and that he wanted a second opinion. I am sooooooooo tired from the trip and waiting I said what do you want me to do. HE took the phone book looked up a orthopedic doctor he knew in a nearby town that he likes and called them. Told them we wanted a second opinion and why, They said it didn't sound right to them she was only in a cast for 3 weeks that for all their patients with a break it is 6 weeks. That is how long our son was in his cast when he broke his arm, said the doctor we are wanting to see would not be in the rest of the day due to surgeries and had surgeries to do MOnday but that they could proabably talk to him about it Monday so they would call us back MOnday or Tuesday to let us know. He also takes our insurance, so that would be great.
It wasn;t bad what they charged today . $35 for the splint which I paid today and $80 for xray which they are gonna bill me for. But when we go back she will have to have another xray and I don;t know what else they will do. But Dh does not want her to go back there, so we will see. All this going on while I am fixing to have a baby. SHEESH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We just have so much going on too with other things too. Monday I will be 36 weeks. I will post more later
