I began PT about two weeks ago and things have gone steadily downhill since. I'm doing all the stretches three times a day as suggested. By the end of my first set of exercises, my pain begins to spike. After the second round, I'm barely able to walk for the rest of the day.

I've been called "non-compliant" in previous medical records, so I don't want to discontinue the exercises that I'm prescribed, but lately it's at the expense of being able to get into the bathtub or put on my own socks.
Insanity is trying the same treatments again and again and expecting different results. I'm a hopeless case. These challenges seem insurmountable. I'm never going to find relief, and I no longer have any quality of life.
