Default 4 Different Surgeries

Is it just me or does life just always try to stack the cards against me? I'm looking at double ankle surgery to repair a completely fused left ankle and a partially fused right ankle, talk about the shittiest of luck, but it is really cool to see the x-rays and look at the obvious bone spurs. This will be the 4th non-snowboard related surgery in my life. (will upload pictures by June when I get the operation.)

Good luck. I've had surgery on both ankles to remove burn spurs, chips and scar tissue from major sprains from basketball. Fused ankles sounds a bit gnarlier than that The surgeries just come with doing the things I enjoy so fuck it, I'm not gonna sit on the couch all day. Luckily no serious injuries in 20 years of skiing and 1 year of boarding so far *knock on wood*

BigAL that's how you hurt your ankles...got to be honest didn't think you looked like that.

Was the designer pissed you ruined their show?

The doctor is giving me anywhere from 5-8 months so it looks like my next season could be over. *sobs violently*

Default That Came out of my Leg, Cool.

*Viewer discretion is advised*

Well finally had my surgery today and currently experiencing a form of the "munchies" and eating $30 of Moo Shu (V). I couldn't believe that was hiding in my ankle which is also the reason that backside spins hurt.

It's about 2.5cm of bone and flesh, enjoy!
