Default Foot appt next Tuesday

So my appt with my foot surgeon is in 7 days to see if I need foot surgery. But here what he said 3.5 years ago I may need surgery down the road but we are going to try bracing and pt first. My insurance denied the bracing and will provide so many session of physical therapy.
