Surgery Day - April 6

Three days after the injury, the Dr. confirmed that it was a full rupture and said that he could operate tomorrow because someone else cancelled their surgery. Thank God!!! He gave me a walking boot and sent me home.

The doctor will be using a procedure called Achillon that allows him to make a smaller incision (about 1 inch), which means less risk of infection and less of a scar.

I found out after the surgery that this hospital is ranked #1 in the nation by US News for orthopedic surgery. My feet were in good hands.
