I already have a tennis playing cutie lined up for the rehab.
MT, I'm very bummed to hear about your recent problems. Since I don't know all the details, I'll continue to hold out hope that you can recover without surgery, though it sounds like you've resigned yourself to it. Did the sprain happen on-court? And maybe more importantly, will this affect your job much this coming summer?
The sprain happened off court.
I did it while watching a movie! Very lame indeed!
After sitting through ceremonies and travel for over 6 hours that day (I'm usually on my feet all day), I reclined to watch a movie.
Had my feet elevated on a hassock for 40 min. and when I went to stand up it felt like a severe sprain. Couldn't walk for several days.
Nearly a month later, after several bottles of Vitamin I and plenty of icing there is still some swelling.
I'm not looking forward to crawling ladders and being on my knees for work this summer.
