: Sorry to question the logic, but I had Achilles tendon surgery and wasn't supposed to stretch the tendon for 6 weeks- the Dr. said he would order a medical boot, unless I had "stiff work boots with at least a 2" heel" so the tendon wasn't stretched and the foot held firmly in one position- (I didn't mention HOW MANY pair I had that met that description)
: I wouldn't double-guess your Dr. but perhaps you did not quite get the diagnosis right??
Okay, so scenario here - Doctor is a bootman with a logger fetish especially for younger guys and will ask for lots of follow up visits. Tell me if this turns out to be true.
