It would have been a 3 month wait for the average person to get surgery on that.

Seems like many surgeons love to get pics with the famous athlete they operated on, so that might've moved him up in the que.
Really, it's a pretty good advertisement.

Could someone please explain what's going on with his lower left leg/ankle area in that post-op photo?

Also, anyone know where he got the surgery and who the surgeon was?

I went in for a ruptured tendon and got 3 hour surgery the next day by the same top-o-the-line doctor who looked at it and I'm nobody special. shrug

Yes, you are. Don't be so hard on yourself.

re not being able to get a surgery scheduled that quickly: I'm absolutely nobody and I did the exact same thing JJF did to his knee. I was in the office 2 days ago and the intercom said "Dr "X" John Florence line one" so I knew I was in the right place.
Scheduled my procedure the next day for July 17, pushing it out a week only so I can strap on a knee-brace and hopefully stand in the barrel at The Surf Ranch for my amigo's 50th birthday next week......BTW the Dr green lighted me for that....so it IS very possible to walk, move around, stand, place pressure etc on a blown ACL, just not going to feel strong busting 6 foot airs........

Many opinions. I'm open to listen for anyone with one.

Thanks!

^ Yup, my surgeon got his med education at Yale, then ortho training, then 1 year of specialty microscopic surgical training. So that's 14 years - college(4), med(4), ortho(5), specialty(1). I've heard he's got a big garage with Ferraris and rad sports cars. I read his bedside manner is legendarily horrible and it was true but I don't/didn't care, he's a great surgeon.

Went to a doc for a weird painless lump on my knee, turned out to be fluid from a torn meniscus and he said he could get me in surgery two days later.

Since there was no pain I just let it be.

No idea what you’re talking about with this 3 months BS. Are you on an exchange/Obama Care plan? Covered California plan?

Those plans are shit and most doctors around here don’t even accept them.
