Oh no.  Well, you say surgery in 2 hours? You cut your ligament?  I'm a little confused what you are asking.  Have you seen the doctor (wouldn't think a plastic surgeon was who you'd go to but they certainly could do the surgery.  Orthopedic seems a better match to me though)?  It's been several hours since you posted.  How did it go? Did they tell you what the surgery would entail?

Oh great!  I'm glad you feel the doctor was right for this situation and did a great job. You may need something called 'physical therapy' after and this would be someone who gets you back up and running with stretching and strength exercises.  Are you in much pain?
