First appointment

So I had my first appointment to see the orthopedic surgeon on 3/29/2012.  3 days after I ruptured it and got casted in the emergency.  My wife drove me to the hospital and I crutched my frustrated arse to the fracture clinic.   When the surgeon saw my foot he immediately said that it was fully ruptured.  He didn’t even bother doing any tests on me.  He began to explain the pros and cons of surgery and basically told me that if I ever wanted to play sports again that the surgery route would be the best way to go.  I started to ask him the usual questions, how soon before I can play sports again, what are the risks with surgery, etc…  What I found interesting is that he said most ATR’s happen to males between 30-40 years of age and who are weekend warriors.  I thought to myself that I totally fit the bill.  It didn’t take me long before I decided to go the surgery route.  The doc said that he could book me in for surgery that weekend on 3/31/2012.  He said that sooner the surgery is done the better.  I signed all the required papers for the surgery and off I went to the couch where I would spend the next 2-3 months on.
