The wreck (continued)

I told them no; I was not ready. I told them that I would contact them, when I was ready. The Neurologist told me that there was nothing wrong with my back. They made fun of the way I could not walk. The Neurologist sent me to Physical Therapy.
The first week I went to Physical Therapy Jimmy put ice and heat on my back. He kept telling me that, there was no reason why, I could not work the following week. The Robaxin and Motrin helped, when I didn't move. As long as I stayed in bed, I could tolerate the pain. It felt like the whole spine was pulled out of the jacket. I called work and was going to try to return to work on Monday, the following week. I went to work, on that Monday, every hour I was lying down and putting ice on my low back to keep going the next hour. I didn't try to go the next day. Jimmy at Pysical Therapy just said, "there was no reason that I could not work." I went back to the Neurologist two weeks later for a return appointment. The doctor said, "that the S.I. joint was out." He did a exercise, in the office, by picking my right leg up to rotate it. He made the comment that my leg should feel better now. The next day, I saw Jimmy at Physical Therapy again. He was putting me on the bike for 2 to 3 minutes and wanted me to walk around the room by this time. I tried, but I did not have the strength in my legs to walk. "My legs got numb after that exercise yesterday," I said. "What exercise?" Jimmy asked. The one the doctor did to my right leg yesterday. Jimmy said,"Oh no!" Don't tell me he put the S.I. joint back in. He said, "They go back in on there on." Jimmy even stated that putting S.I. joints back in could cause problems later on. I had razor feelings on the outside of my legs, Charlie horses in my thighs today, and my rectal area is numb now. My right middle buttock is numb to my feet. I cannot pass gas. My perineum is numb. I feel very weak in my legs.
