Default Well, it's official ...

my surgery date has been decided. On October 17, I get a full right ankle replacement. I hope it works.

Then probably 2 - 3 after that, it will be start all over with a full left knee. Every time a Dr looks at x-rays of my various parts, they all say 'You sure were tough on your body'. Makes me wonder about the whole fitness mythos. But it sure was fun.

At least you have Canadian healthcare. Here, you'd be on your way to being the six million dollar man.

Okay, I be home! Now to just let it heal for 6 months when hopefully, it will hurt less then it did before the surgery.

When the surgeon got to cutting, it was worse then he thought it was. He cleaned up the joint and when he tried to put in the prosthetic joint, it wouldn't fit because over time my Achilles has shrunk, so he had to lengthen my Achilles, and do ligament work all around my foot, not just on the outside.

It is up to the surgeon whether I get it of not, but I have a request in for copies of my post surgery x-rays. If I get them, I will share pictures of my new parts.

Everything seems to have gone fine, and drugs help with the pain.

Okay, now comes the toughest part...following the doctor's instructions and not trying to do too much too soon. And, yes physical therapy will suck, but they know what they're doing.

Take care, and give your body time to mend.

Hope you're only hobbling around for a short time. Heal up quick.
