I think you're on the right track with the ankle specialist. Unfortunately, dealing with workman's comp is cumbersome and takes time. Look forward to hearing how your appt goes on Tues. Be sure to write down any questions you have prior to your appt. Good luck and let us know how things go.
Hi Btrfli1

I had surgery on 2/22/12 - I had an arthroscopic debridement, Brostrum procedure and repair of peroneus brevis tendon on the right ankle. I am planning on writing down all of my questions.

Thanks for the encouragement - it has been a rough time for me lately......
