ankle surgery, yes or no?
« on: February 26, 2017, 12:01:24 AM »
Rolled my ankle really badly about 4 months ago... finally got an MRI and they found some pretty significant tendon tears.  I can walk on it ok but still hurts to articulate so haven't really skated.  basically feels like it healed to 50% and is just stuck at 50%.  doc is suggesting surgery.  who's gone through this?  should I wait it out or consider surgery while it's somewhat fresh?  the fact that i've felt no improvement over the past 3 months of taking it easy is what bothers me.  also i may lose my healthcare soon, so if I were to get surgery, now would be the time
