OK, I’m sure a few of you know I’m dealing with some health issues. One of them is a great deal of pain in my left ankle. Been dealing with this over the past year. So let me bring you up to speed.
So I had surgery on it this year, about 6-7 months ago.
Even 4 weeks after the surgery it looked like I had a Hobbit foot.
Many pictures were taken. The bone should be nice and smooth and white. Clearly that’s not the case. The doctor took one picture to show what it should look like.
Last week I had a CT scan done and talked to my surgeon yesterday. The bones are fractured all over, he said the bones look like the grand canyon. I got a nerve block while I was there to verify that is where the pain is coming from. I was pain-free on that ankle, and it was amazing.
I’m scheduled for a total ankle replacement on Oct. 1st. It will look a bit like this. To be pain-free, even if it’s just one joint is something I’m really looking forward to.
