Had Arcon computerized FCE done 2 weeks ago. Had doctor's appointment yesterday for result. I had not taken pain med in 8-10 hours prior to the test because I wanted to see what I could or could not do. I told the person performing the test that I was hurting prior to starting the test. He told me to do what I could but not to engage in any maneuver beyond what I could tolerate or would cause harm or injury. Doing some of the test I was hurting with increasing pain but still attempted the test. The test said I failed the coefficents of variation in the ST testing,HD testing and the right strenght cruve testing The therapist noted on his report to the doctor that He thougth I put forth QUESTIONABLE effort throughtout the evaluation .I can truthfully say I tried but was hurting very much that day and could not do all test as long and as instructed to. I live in the state of Louisiana. Also Has any one ever failed a FCE and what was there outcome?
