What an #%*. I cannot believe that first doctor!
I am so livid for you. Luckily you've got a new appointment with someone great.
I really like my doctor and even he wasn't sure what to do with me back in August. At first it was.. Well. Less than 5% need a repeat surgery... Try this boot for a month. It took two months for him to do the MRI. I really thought he was just going to tell me it was going to take more time and to just stay off of it... I was shocked when he looked and told me it needed surgery again.
I kind of hyperventilated and had to take a moment to breathe and not cry.
But it was good to have answers. And to know, finally, I wasn't being a wimp, tha the pain I was feeling had a 'legitimate' (1 1/2 inch tear!) cause. I totally understand that feeling. You are right. There is something seriously wrong with your ankle and you need help. I hope you get some good answers soon.
