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*

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

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!
