the surgeon

I worked from home today; in the afternoon I went to the hospital for my appointment with the othopaedic surgeon. First I was interviewed and examined by a nice co-assistent. She wrote down her findings and then went off to talk to the boss, who turned out to be another female doctor who did the same examination again.

The verdict is that the joints in my left ankle and foot have almost no cartilage left. The surgeon told me that if it had been in my hips or my knee they could have fitted an artificial joint, but that their experience with artificial ankle joints isn't too good. So they've made the decision not to install these ankle joints in the clinic, and, obviously, neither in my leg.

Her advice: swimming or cycling and take a painkiller when it gets too much. I already suspected this much two months ago when I made the appointment. Now can I get paid the same amount as an orthopaedic surgeon? After all, I can do the diagnosis and I'm good at cutting my steak.

I could have given you the same advice: a good rest when it all gets too much, swim a lot and take painkillers when the pain gets painstakingly unbearable.

So, when do I get paid? )

It is the individuals own responsibility to eventually find the root causes of their thought patterns which is causing them the anxiety.
