i have had 2 surgeries and five screws in my ankle, so i sort of feel your pain, but not really, yours is 1000x worse. i have also seen some bad breaks...but yours takes the cake. Thats just miserable! I wish you the best of luck on a speedy recovery and that everything sets in there well.

Damn man well hope the Ankle Distraction Arthroplasty works although I'm sure your not happy about getting another external fixator, but in the long run hopefully it's for the best and you get to do some snowboarding mid/late season. Best of luck and as always good vibes your way

Seeing this article reminded me of this thread. Victim of shark attack orders prosthetic limbs for snowboarding - English pravda.ru

Guy is attacked by a shark and loses his arms and gets hooked with prosthetics to help him snowboard.

I'm curious too. Not very many people lose a leg due to snowboarding. How is the recovery going? Get that new bionic leg so that you can punt cars in the parking lot?

Sorry for not updating for a while. It's been a long road. My 2011 ankle distraction arthroplasty helped improve my ankle pain, but it wasn't enough to get me active again (and snowboarding). My orthopedic surgeon and I decided a below-knee amputation was the best option going forward. Both fusion and replacement are guarantees of more surgery and pain. My amputation is on June 14th. I've been updating the blog again this year at Snowboarder vs. Tree.

I'm hoping to be back on my board this fall after three years!!! Cannot wait.
