Ankle Replacement

Recommended Posts

After years of abuse (running), my ankle finally got to a point where it was painful to even walk anymore. Arthritis and bone spurs. They could have cleaned it up but doc advised on a total replacement. Had it done on the 15th. Doing pretty good thus far. Was in a splint for a week, now in a hard cast until next Wednesday, then I will be in a boot and starting physical therapy. Supposed to be back to work on the 10th. Figured I'd get in the Christmas spirit with a red cast.....lol

Glad I did not wait till my morning breakfast to see those pictures!!

 

Hope everything goes well. Modern medical science can be amazing when it comes to replacing parts.

 

Be sure to ask about their Maximum Care Unlimited warranty. There are a lot of parts in there.

 

Good luck.

Nice cast!  Had my knee replaced in 2015, due to an injury.  Had enough therapy to last a lifetime!  One bit of advice on therapy, do what they tell you, not more, and ice is your friend!  Good luck!

Best of luck to you, j.  Heal well.  Don't rush recovery.  I'm just getting through therapy for a tibial plateau fracture with a tibial spine avulsion at the ACL.  At week 9.  Still on crutches.  

 

That's the price of admission for mountain biking, I guess.  

 

Peace.
