I wish I knew. Sounded like some BS to me. When I went to urgent care, the doc did some tests to see if my Achilles was ruptured (wasn't), and did some X-rays. The he gave me one of those air casts where it supports both sides of the foot and let me go. I was able to drive with that.
I got a call two days later saying the radiologist saw some stuff on the X-ray they didn't like. I went in to see the orthopedic physician's assistant that recommended the full boot aircast and ordered an MRI.
They said I needed a week to get the MRI because they had to "pre-approve" it with my insurance company. I had the MRI last Wednesday, and heard about the results on Friday. Today at 2:00pm I see the orthopedic guy. I'm going to tell him that if I need surgery, I want it scheduled THIS WEEK. I can't rehab anything with this full boot cast on, so I am getting frustrated.........
