mini-breakdown
I had a little breakdown last night.  See, when you have hardware removal surgery on your ankle - there are a few things you hear over and over: "it's nothing like the last one" and "recovery for this one is really easy" and "you'll be fine." This is great,...

ankle hardware removal surgery: part 2
Continued from part 1 Waking Up: As if no time had passed, I was waking up in the wake-up room. My throat didn't feel sore at all like last time and I remember asking the nurse if they used the throat tube to help me breathe again. I have no idea how she re...

Recovery After Ankle Surgery
It's been a year since I made THIS video, so I figured I should make a follow-up. Here's how I am one year after walking - and one month & one year after weight-bearing. I suppose as long as you guys show interest, I'll keep posting - so let me know if ther...

ooooh the paranoia
I've gotta say...one of the worst parts about getting surgery is the paranoia that comes with recovery. In my case, the thing I'm most afraid of - now and after the first surgery - is a blood clot. Soooo one begins to Google.  This is obviously the worst po...
