The Dr. came in and examined his legs, then said to me,
"Has he been diagnosed with CP?"
"Well, that's what it looks like the problem is to me. He needs to be in leg braces."
"Um......ok. For how long?
"For the rest of his life."
He then said I needed to take him back to the Neurologist for more tests as to what was for sure causing the problem. He wrote me a scrip for the braces and said to come back in 3 months. The whole visit was 10 minutes tops.
By the time I got to the car, all the questions I should have asked started to come to me, along with the very real urge to burst into tears. Of course, I couldn't, because I didn't want to alarm The Bear. I, of course, went straight home and called the Neuro...twice. They have yet to call me back.
I really don't want to do the braces until I have a diagnosis from the Neuro as to what the problem is. Do you have any input? Any experience in this area? Please share!
