I think that is definitely the case. My physio for Hip 1 was a lovely, kind woman, but sometimes I felt like I could limp in there with one leg chopped off and she would look at her notes and say, “OK, so we had you doing 10 side raises with the yellow band, now I want you to move on to 15 with a purple band.” But I did value her encouragement and, especially, reassurance.Sometimes I feel like they need to push you to feel like they are doing their job
I laid down the law from the outset with my physiotherapist for Hip 2, also a very kind person, and I may have frightened him off, because we are going verrrrrry gently. That has been working fine for me, but I think I am ready to pick up the pace now. At my next visit, which will be at almost 5 months, and will be my last visit if all continues well, I will ask him to set out a progressive program for the future.
So like you, I am looking forward to my session with confidence.
BTW, “chuffed” means pleased, with a dash of excitement, a smidgeon of satisfaction and a grace note of gratification. Times two.
