Progression from fracture, to pins and plate, to no hardware.
Note large voids left in both tibia and fibula where screws came out.
In the middle x-ray image above, you can see how the two pins protrude from medial bump on my ankle. It was those that gave me the most grief. The right image suggest I may have a more normal looking medial bump when the swelling subsides. Hope this makes significant improvement in XC skiing comfort.
Titanium trophy collection. Scale in centimeters. Plate is shorter than
I thought it would be. Pretty stuff. Shiny and very light weight. The
pins are hollow, and all screws look just like self-tapping sheet
I now realize there will be a little more down time than I first believed. I'm to do nothing until I see the orthopaedic surgeon in a week, when my stitches come out. Bummer. I was at least hoping to ride on the road this weekend. Oh well, I got in 13hrs of riding, rollerskiing, hiking and running last week, and I had a good 10k run this morning before surgery.
Wonder what I'll feel tomorrow when the block wears off? They gave me a 'script for percocet. Hope I don't have to use it. That is nasty stuff.
