So right now I'm undergoing what's called ankle distraction arthroplasty. Basically I've got my third ex-fix on to pull the ankle joint appart to see if we can make the osteoarthritis any better. My wife, surgeon, and probably most importantly, me, all agree that a below-the-knee amputation is the best answer. I've seen some videos of guys snowboarding with a BKA, so I'm anxious to try it. I'm still a few years away from it, but I cannot wait to get back on a board. Absolutely cannot wait. I'm jealous of all of you.
