I have paperwork to fill out and take back with me Wednesday. Looks like I have to keep going back for a while, but insurance will be paying for it.
He took x-rays and did some testing. I have some whiplash and there’s something out of whack in my lower back. Maybe from when the car was rolling over. Lots of soft tissue damage on my left side, probably from banging against the driver’s door as the car turned.
I had printed out the pictures, he was just amazed I walked away.
He asked if I’d gone to any other doctor before coming to see him and I said “no”. And that the only reason I wanted to see him is because of what he’d told me after I fell down the hill. I didn’t go in until our regular monthly visit and I was feeling pretty bad. He said if I’d come in when I’d fallen, the problem wouldn’t have had a chance to get as bad as it did. I kind of figured that would be the best thing to do. I’m glad I did. He was pleased I hadn’t gone to anyone else yet, he said “they’d do a lot of unneccesary stuff”. And you know they’d charge for it, too.
He told me to up my calcium intake (and he said that taking the calcium before I left on the trip most likely helped me do as well as I did (calcium is a natural relaxant)) and ice down the parts that hurt the most.
Anyway, so that’s where it stands right now. I have to do litterboxes, this should be fun since I can’t lift the bucket if it’s full. I’ll have to do lots of little half full buckets.
