@sarah_jones , your physio is probably happy to chat, as you seem OK with it. Try politely asking to do some physio.

I got diagnosed same year. Physio was a waste of time. 1st session was just talking then it was just little activities like catch a bean bag whilst sat on a big rubber ball. I did 1 walking exercise between parallel bars. 4 weeks was up n didn’t bother wi it again. I did go to a self help gym for a few months but it got tougher so I stopped . Now I do what I can at home as it’s easier.

I had a Physiotherapist assigned to me by my MS Nurse for all of 3 or 4 home visits, on her last visit she said that she would not be continuing any further. To me it seems that Patients can have Physio etc for a short period of time, you want more then you’re gonna have to fork out for it.

I’m so sorry physio didn’t work out for you both but as to pay for it when your not satisfied with the service is bad, I’m considering going in to a wheelchair now as it’s got so hard for me to do a few steps but when do you say to yourself I can’t do this no more the physio said its my choice???

Sarah, my physio came, polite and lovely, then announced she is leaving that week and someone would replace her, that was almost 5 years ago. I exercise but a fall and cracked ribs has delayed that, now I have started again, also my x wife is a fitness instructor and is listed as one of my carers so that helps, what a life hey, but as Stumbler said, you may be a sweet person and easy to chat too, stand up and say, you need help and guidance
