Hmnnnn, before you mentioned ot was 2.5 cm, I thought it looked a lot bigger. Hard to get any perspective in those shots. Where exactly was that located on/in your ankle?

I've had 2nd degree sprains mutiple times on both ankles. Ligaments have lots of calcium deposits from tears healing. On X-ray, it looks like I've got lots of buckshot in my foot! I can feel a few of them just under the skin too.

Im fortunate tho in that, that condition does not seem to cause me any discomfort.

Wishing you a FULL & speedy recovery!

It actually was part of the ankle (I have my CT scan shots around somewhere) I has a literal fin sticking out of the posterior talus and a spur on the anterior that probably broke off when I crashed in March.

They put it in a sealed sterile jar, so I guess it's okay, but then again it is Wisconsin, "We'd let you take your removed pancreas as a gift". LOL

What's the verdict from the doctor, they think getting those chunks out will help your ankles have more movement?

By the way the disclaimer was read waaaay after seeing the pictures Glad they are blurry!

Better take that rehab seriously and you'll have a kickass time when you get back on your board! I've had my fare share of injuries and the time off gave me time to think and set my priorities straight. Have had the best seasons the seasons right after my injuries!

I took my dog's testicles home after I helped neuter him...

Every time he acted up I would grab the jar, hold it up and say "These are MINE now, so listen up!"

Right now it's looking good for me, but during surgery they had to move some tissue out of the way which stretched a nerve that controls sensation on the left side of the foot. Fortunately it wasn't cut and with good massages the nerve will be better. Looking at 4-6 weeks of PT and barred from getting back on the tramp for 2 months. My doctor t who is a rider as well (You know your doctor kicks ass when he/she snowboards) says I'll be riding again by December.

I like the fact that there are now two people on this forum who are delightfully evil.

Only two?
Or are the others simply evil without being delightful about it?
