Can someone help me please!! I went to the foot doctor today and he told me I needed to have my ruptured tendon to my big toe repaired,,,"If it was my wife she would be in surgery tomorrow"!!! There are so many negative side effects and risks to surgery. Does anyone know what happens if I DON'T have the surgery? How long will recovery be, possible side effects, etc? I'm really quite scared to have it done but don't know what wil happen if I don't. I understand there is a very small window in repairing a tendon as it continue to retract but the doctor scared me when he said he would cut an incision on the top of my foot to try and locate the end of the rupture, and will cotinue up my foot until he finds it. HELP!!! He wants an answer by Monday,
