Bear with me..Im kinda perturbed..
My 17 year old son, 5-11-185lbs..PLays staring fullback and Linebacker ( 1st in county on # of tackles). Never complains, never misses practice has had broken ribs, broken metacarpals took only ibuprofen because I MADE him...well last friday walks of field at end of game with rt arm hanging flaccid. Apposing teams sport med man checks him out says go to ortho--possible A.C. seperation..ok monday went to Primary Doctor he does physical assement ..says take ibuprofen,do not lift or use arm ..I will get your referral to to ortho today...He did.. Went to ortho wed. A.M...My son fills out 3 pages of paper work...on cheif complaint sheet states first pain with R shoulder 3 WEEKS AGO!...and states pain as 8 on 1-10 scale. In to the assment room we go .Doc. does minimal
push pull touchy feely assessment and says we need xray...son goes out of room for xray..comes back...docs back in 5 mins...says "oh its a sprained A.C." I had to probe and ask him ..ok can he play..are there exercises,,what about treatment..Guess what the Tu%d said ? Oh what ever he can stand..the mans a joke not a doctor...My son cant lift his freekin arm
and doc wont even write a note so he can miss couple practices to let injury rest. I asked my son did doo- doo head do a weighted xray? did you hold a weight in your hand? Son said NO.... So I did MY nurse and MOTHER thingy...I laid it out to the coaches. I put kid in sling, and 1 week off no hitting..... My question is wouldn't a weighted xray show more????
I wont be seeing that doc again :angryfire... ok please forgive my rambling/griping and moaning....Thanks.
