Moving Forward

My surgery to fix the broken foot is scheduled for Monday. I was pre-admitted today. It will be an outpatient surgery, and barring complications I will be home Monday evening. My doctor explained some of the results of the MRI done of my left knee but I didn’t catch all of the anatomical terms to which he referred. I did hear: “torn ligament,ā€ which he will not repair at this time. He said I could still walk and do other activities after rehab, and that if I were very athletic he would perform surgery for the tear. He also said there was a small tear in the “meniscus” which we should be alert to, but that he would also take a wait and see approach to as well.

  1. I am so glad this surgery is scheduled. I hope the wait-and-see approach is the right one, that everything which can heal up on its own will, and that you won’t need any further surgeries after Monday’s.
