RCA doctor reports backMay 22, 2009
Today we met again with the medical director of the Revalidation Center Amsterdam. He went immediately (without delay) through his reports concerning me. I will now tell you what he told us concerning:
Psychotherapy: I will continue with his therapy but only if necessary. I need him less and less. The psychologist will reserve a weekly slot in his agenda for me that I may fill anytime. I plan to see him at least every month because I like to get feedback on how I (have to or want to) deal with topics like the end-phase, dying, euthanasia and donating my body to science.
Speech Therapy: I could tell him more than he could tell me. I knew already that my psychologist had urged the speech therapist for continuing with speech therapy (logo-therapy). My problem is that I fail to see wrongly spelled words and I can’t detect words that I omitted to write. After the explanation from my psychologist my speech therapist changed her report.
Writing Therapy: Also this time I had more up-to-date information for the medical director. I had given up writing therapy because the writing therapist ordered me to also write more frequently at home and I had to bring samples from before the surgery. They showed a remarkable and unexpected result: my handwriting now is better than before.
Physiotherapy: I wanted to continue with this and dr. Koppe (medical director of the Revalidation Center) agreed. So I may continue with Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Sports Therapy (fitness, badminton and table tennis) and riding a bi-cycle or tri-cycle.
All in all not a bad result! Thanks dr. Koppe!
