So I have a confession to make...I have been on a googling rampage this week. Mostly I have been looking for anyone who has experience with an LLD and clubfoot. It doesn't seem like there are a lot of us out there and even less doctors that have the qualifications to treat it. Here in San Diego there are only 2 Ponsetti Certified orthopedists which are both located at Rady's Children's Hospital. Then the Rady's website has a description of their clubfoot treatment which is definitely NOT the Ponsetti treatments...so confused. My husband and I are currently trying to pull every string we got to try to have a consultation. Of course if the consultation goes well there is the whole issue of insurance. Currently I have Kaiser insurance and can only go to a Kaiser doctor. My little man is due Dec 1st and my work has open enrollment in Oct/Nov that goes into effect Jan 1st. So the question is....is it worth being treated by a Kaiser doctor for the first 30 days then be able to transfer to the certified orthopedist when my insurance can transfer over or do I wait to get treatment all together. I guess that is what the consultations are for right?
I might have a lot of time coming up for consultations soon. Lately I have been having dizzy/short of breath/heart racing spells in the morning at work that lead to me vomiting for the next hour or so. I thought it might be a return of my horrific morning sickness I had until I was 25 weeks. Had an appointment with my midwife yesterday and she said its a vaso-vascular issue? Supposedly when I am constantly bending at work (which I do a lot of!) I am cutting of blood supply and causing my nervous system to go haywire...great. The solution? I now have to go into work and explain to my Asst. Curator why I have a doctors note that says I am no longer allowed to bend at the waist. This is going to go over real well. My work has been amazing and very supportive this entire time but now I feel like my issues are getting a little ridiculous. I can just image what their reaction is going to be.
