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.
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.
That is a ankle joint replacement. I’m getting the newest and best on the market at this time that’s FDA approved. I asked if I could have my joint back in a jar. Sadly, no. But he’s going to try and get some pictures of the damage.
Sorry to hear.
And I feel your pain.
My ankles look like yours and hurt, too.
But rather than opt for surgery, I bought high top walking shoes instead.
Less risk and much cheaper.
Works pretty good.
Doctors go for the knife too fast to suit me.
