Doctor Results (for the wrestler)

So i went in to the ortho on friday with the MRI at hand. and they doc looked it over and said that it was a partial tear and that i would have to keep my cast on for 4 more weeks. (ive been on crutches for a month already. two of those weeks with the cast) he seemed so relaxed about it. and i questioned him making sure he KNEW i wanted to go back to my old lifestyle and she said that i would be just fine with the cast and that if in 4 weeks when he takes it off and  if he feels that its too tender he will leave it on for 2 more weeks.

it scares me how im more worried about this then my doctor. What do u guys think?

    I was in plaster for 9 weeks, so don’t be overly concerned. I think the longer you are off the leg the better until it all knits together. We have to remember that the Surgeons are doing their job all the time and often seem less concerned than we do.

    They are usually right though, so we just have to accept the situation. If you are really concerned ask for a second opinion.

    One thing to always remember is that it isn’t their ankle it is yours, so if you are not satisfied with something let them know. It is their job to treat you and keep you informed, and if you are not satisfied, like Annie wrote, talk to someone else. Doctors aren’t mind readers though, so make sure you are communicating with yours.
