pain Management Programme

Well I travelled to Liverpool to be assessed for the PPM and was accepted on all counts accept because I have a relatively new injury I was turned down until my shoulder and  ribs have heeled.

Gutted as I really wanted to get on with  the course as I believe that it is the way forward for me.

They decided to put me down for a reassessment in three months.

    delay is frustrating but it is only a delay 

    3 months does seem a long time when your in pain 

    but at least you have been given some thing definate

      Just a delay but I have to go through the same route of going through this assessment again even though they had passes me for the course and held me back because of a shoulder injury.

      The worst thing is that I will have to go through the same 5am start and 8pm before I get home because of flights and drive.

      And then I will have to wait for a position on the course.

      well that does seem a bit silly if you have already been passed except for the need of a shoulder to be heeeled . but i suppose its covering there back . its the same if you get seen by a specialist for an op but due to another health problem it has to be delayed you have to go all thru the routin checks again it is a reall pain in more than one way i wish you a speedy recovery and i hope your wait will not be to long afterwards .
