A few weeks ago I was at neuro. He said I needed a foot splint and to ask physio. Two weeks ago I saw physio and she tried me with a carbon fibre one and I felt it did give me a lot of support. I was under the impression that she was going to order me one. I went back yesterday and no mention of foot splint. When I asked she reckoned that I need to work on my gait and stop hitch hicking my hip. I walked up and down trying to not to trip over my foot. To be honest I think that she has to get approval to order these things from consultant as they are about £400. I would pay for it myself if it would work - would want a demo to try first. Sometimes I wonder if they mean that it would not work or is it actually the cost which clouds the decision. I keep thinking that about the botox that has been refused to me too - as it wouldnt work!
A very Frustrated me!
