    hello!

    I would definately speak with them both in detail. Just remain open to what they say, just so long as of course, they remain open to your concerns and regards. Wishing you all the best.

    Mary,

    I am sorry to hear that things didnt work out with Physical Therapy. I was really hoping that this would help you and finally bring you some much needed relief. I do agree with the others that it is best to just explain to them why you arent able to continue with it. I am sure you wont be the first to discontinue it for the reasons you have. If it is helping, they may know what to do to help you continue with your sessions. If it isnt helping, then they need to know that too, so they will know how to proceed in managing your care.

    Please dont be distraught over this situation. If it doesnt work out, there are still lots of other things to try. If some of it is helping but some of it makes things worse, they may be able to modify it for you. If it is too expensive, they may know of programs that will cover it or loop holes with your insurance company to help get it covered. They have so much information and knowledge of services at their disposal. But, they cant use any of theirs to help you if you hold back the information on your end. Does that make any sense? (If not, it's b/c it is 2:25 am here, and I am pretty sleepy. )

    Anyway, I really hope that once you talk things over with them that you all can work something out to help you start feeling better. Please let us know what happens. I know that we are all going to be worrying about you.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    It's always a good idea to be truthful when dealing with your doctor. He/she can't know to try different things without knowing what you are doing and what's working (or not working) for you. And if it's finances that are stopping the PT, your doctor may be able to help you with your insurance appeal.


    Hugs,
    Donna

    has the PT made a difference to you? I think you started Pt about the same time as me. My uro wants to see me after 8 visits, so 2 more to go. My PT therapist asked me if I have noticed a difference, No. Am I feeling better ,no. I think that in the 6 visits I have been to only 1 week I felt ok. My pain is much worse. I was in such pain today I left work a couple hours early but that was only possible because it was slow. If my insurance was taking care of 95% I don't think I would continue. I don't want to do it anymore either so I feel the same way. I keep hoping that maybe it will start to make a difference so I am scared that if I stop I won't get better but scared it will make it worse!

    Hi Mary,
    Just want to let you know that IF it is the insurance coverage issue that is why you want to quit, that you do have the right to appeal within the insurance company & up the chain of command to the insurance commissioner. If the PT is helping you, maybe your doctor could help with the appeals process.

    On the other hand, if it is due to depression that you want to quit, I would encourage you not to. If your emotional state is keeping you from doing things that are helpful to your physical recovery, then it is time to seek some help from a medical social worker or counselor.

    People seek help for far less things than what we deal with daily from IC & I would bet that many, if not most, of us have had some level of counseling to deal with what a mess IC can make of our lives.

    Hang in there & if something is working, fight to keep it!

    I THINK that Mary posted before that she couldn't get the full PT covered anymore. She said that it only helped when she did the back massage with the heat and she can't get that done anymore. She said all the other PT is worthless without that so she doesn't want to continue it because it just gets her hopes up and very soon she won't be able to do it anymore. Maybe I have it wrong Mary, I just thought I read that before, which would make sense to me why she wants to quit now.

    If you are getting help, I would continue to go. However if you have made your mind up to quit, I think it is only fair to tell your uro and PT. If you are on any ssd and the question arises about quiting pt and you were having success you may lose your benefits.

    You have a whole life ahead of you, don't give up now.

    About your statement,"nothing in my life changes," if you think about it, every day changes in some manner. Perhaps what you mean is things in your life seem to change slower than you would like?
    The good thing about slower changes is they are usually more permanent than the quick fix thing.
    You sound really down today, I am sorry you feel so blue. If PT is helping and you are not paying out of your pocket to go, maybe tommorow you can rethink some of this?

    Hummm... Just wandering if it was helping why do you want to quit?
    But if you feel strongly about it just tell him the truth, tell him how you feel about it.. He seems like a very good doctor so im sure he will understand..

    started a topic Should I lie or tell him I want to quit

    Should I lie or tell him I want to quit

    I see my Uro tomorrow and I don't want to go on with the PT. Him and my PT are really excited about how it has been helping but I just don't really want to be bothered with it anymore. I stopped doing the exercises and walking. Do I just finish the month out and say nothing or tell him tomorrow and quit? I'm thinking she will be mad about it but I know he will understand why.
Working...
