I went to see my doctor on Friday for a checkup on my sprained ankle. I thought for sure I'd get off crutches. Instead, I'm getting an MRI. She wasn't happy with how swollen and bruised it still is. I could be heading for physical therapy...or worse. If the ligament is totally torn, I'll have to have some pretty extensive surgery! It would have a 6-12 month total rehab time on it!!!!! I may be eating crow later but I'll be surprised if surgery is the case...it doesn't feel THAT bad. Hopefully it will just be some intensive physical therapy.

I am so sorry. This sounds painful. I hope the MRI shows things are better than expected

It's really not hurting that horribly. That is why I'll be very surprised it the MRI shows I need surgery. I was shocked the doctor said I needed an MRI when I saw her on Friday.

Tell me about it! If I have surgery, I expect many pictures of Scar to be posted here and on Facebook to keep me amused as I recover.
