It took almost three weeks to hear from TRAQS. A message was left on the answerphone, but the patients name wasn’t mentioned. It could have been for anyone.
With a shoulder problem I have to care for my physically disabled daughter (with a learning disability). I have no “outside” care, so appointments are very difficult to attend as it has to “fit in” with my daughter’s moods and seizures. Also, she doesn’t have a normal sleep pattern since starting new medication.
Because I am right handed and it was my right shoulder which has problems, I have had to use my left side more, resulting in a worsening of the carpal tunnel problem in my left hand! !
I have found some exercises on the internet and have been doing these whilst waiting for the appointment. Pushing a wheelchair hasn’t helped.
PS: This leaflet doesn’t explain what TRAQS stands for.
