I have to say it's a relief just knowing I don't have to have surgery. I'm kind of sorry it's going to take a whole week before I can even get started on the physical therapy but I couldn't get an earlier appointment and at least I was able to get them on the phone with a minimum of fucking around. The phone system at the surgeon's office was one of the worst I've dealt with. It didn't help that the other doctor didn't bother giving me the extension. At any rate the wheels are in motion so to speak.
