Oh, some doctors are egomaniacal fiends. Heaven forbid anyone challenge their authority. A friend of mine used to work in a med school library, and the patrons (docs all) would literally throw tantrums if they couldn't get what they wanted. He once found one literally banging his head against a wall.
Anyway, hope all proceeds well with Mr. B. and other physicians. Best wishes!
Sorry about the annoying doctor. That is so annoying. We had an issue very similar with a doctor about a week or so before my mom.passed. just makes a stressful situation worse. I hope you have better luck with your other doctor and mr b-wavy feels better soon
Maybe your regular physician can write you a referral for PT, even if it's just for 2 or 3 visits. If it is the hip flexors that are getting out of whack they can show him the exercises and monitor him for a little while to make sure it's going well, and he can continue at home.
SaraNoH, that's what I'm hoping too. His regular doc did offer to refer him to someone about 2 years ago when he had a similar episode, but Mr Stubbornpants didn't take him up on it. I'm kinda thinking he will this time.
