Re: pttd - pain, post surgery - depressing (don't read if you are just starting)
You can't live in pain all your life. Find another doctor and, if you have to, redo the surgery. I know you don't want to be in a cast and the driving thing is bad, but really, what are your options? Stay in that much pain or deal with the recovery again? I'd take my chances on a successful surgery and not have the pain every day. Pain sucks and the recovery is only temporary.
