Yes he was a HUGE jerk.... so glad when I switched. I was a nervous wreck though - afraid this second doc would be the same way. He hasn't been thankfully. I am relived that he is man enough to admit he doesn't know all the answers and to send me to Mercy Hospital instead. That says alot to me about my doctor - that he wants to do things right and make sure everything is up to "snuff"

Thanks so much for the encouragement Ginger - I really have felt crazy or that I was overreacting or something. It is a relief to be encouraged and to know I'm not alone and I'm NOT crazy....

I just wrote a list of all the issues I'm still having with my ankle - to bring with me on Tuesday (so I don't forget)

Thanks again everyone - my mental state is much bbetter than it has been in a while!
