My friend is a 66 year old woman who suffered a massive stroke and because she was not making enough progress in physical therapy they discontinued her sessions. Her sister does not know who to turn to and therapy has been stopped for close to a month now.
Second opinions can be valuable, as well, from any type of doctor. You friend is young to accept a lesser quality of life without looking into alternatives.
Or is it that you and the sister are wondering what else can be done for your friend? If physical therapy isn't likely to help, what is? I think that needs to be discussed with her doctor.
I would like to attempt an appeal. What is involved in the process? I was told you have 30 days to appeal. I only have 10 days till that window closes.
