strength

The doctor ignored me when I said I lost strength again. They put normal strength. How could losing 18 pounds of strength in the left hand be normal? The right lost a lot for kienbock's reasons.

Isn't it measured objectively?  I think if you disagree with their opinion, your disagreement must be noted in your records.

It doesn't seem like it. Dr. Heiss said it was normal strength. On the other hand he said strength loss is caused by Chiari
