Severed Tendon

Last week, I cut my foot and severed the tendon on the top of my big toe. The emergency room doctor stiched it back together, but I fell on it the next day and I think I may have pulled the stitch out (I have a cast on so it's hard to tell, but I can't move my toe up, just like when I cut it).

Is it too late to have it resewn? Also, I have been referred to both a plastic surgeon and orthopedic surgeon...both of whom seem to think that the other is more qualified to help me. What's your opinion? Thanks

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
