I can't get my scanner to work so here are some blurry photos from this mornings operation.
Snapped my foot off, Dr bolted it back on, could move it a bit but not well, physio helped but not enough as something was blocking the joint movement. This morning the quack went in to remove a couple of the big screws and hoover out any gunk in the joint.
Considerable amounts of gunk in the joint
Cleaned that lot out and could actually see the two bone endges
Once the loose red gooey stuff was gone there was still lots of white bone bits in the way
After cleaning, dremelling off the roung edges and hoovering out the crud I now have an ankle joint with two distinct edges
Unfortunately this is another two weeks of partial weight bearing on a pair of crutches.
