More pain meds please! (Update)

I had my ortho consult this morning and the nice dr. says NO SURGERY! I do need lots of PT, and a re-evaluation in 2 weeks to check my progress. Hopefully the tear in the ligament will get better on its own and I should be good as new in a few months!
**Update** Actually I have two tears... one in the Anterior Talofibular Lig. and one in the Calcaneofibular Lig (say that twice without screwing it up). My PCP just called to ask how my appointment went and made the comment about the two tears... which the ortho didn't go into any real detail on while we were there.
