Ankle Surgery #2

Tuesday morning at the bright and early time of 6:15AM I had to be at the surgery center for my second ankle surgery. This one was to remove two long screws, test the ligaments between the bones, and put in two shorter screws.

Before the surgery my doctor asked me if I wanted to keep the screws they removed. I said yeah, my dad would want them.

I put fingernail clippers in the picture so you can get an idea of the length of the screws that were in there! I can't believe how long they were!

Everything went great! The ligaments had repaired themselves and were strong enough that the screws could be exchanged.

I was able to walk to the car afterwards using my aircast. My wedding march is back but I didn't need the crutches!

I started physical therapy yesterday. I'll post more on that later.
