@sequoiaborg,
Lot of metal to be carting around for 9 months . You'll love airport security.
Best of luck for a really good recovery.

@sequoiaborg, Oh my! That is some metalwork! Can't see you getting a ski boot on over that. Hope it heals very quickly. Have they talked about checking your bone density? I don't like the sound of 'leg falling to pieces'!

Latest xray, taken today. Xray was put into a computer which threw up a load of adjustments on the screw adjustable struts which I have to set myself over the next week or so to get the bone pieces in perfect alignment. The orthopod said it might be 'a little uncomfortable'.

Fair play fella. Hope it gets sorted as soon as it can and you get back to some sort of normality asap.

Wow! That is some impressive (not necessarily in a totally good way for you) hardware, and what it's holding together's pretty impressive too. You didn't do it by halves, did you! Good luck for it all coming together right for you, literally and otherwise.

Thanks for all the 'get well' messages.

I've been encouraged to use the bad leg as normally as possible and can walk very short distances without crutches. Despite the frame I'm actually allowed to drive. Improves the quality of life enormously. Am redressing it at home now so can have a shower with dressings removed, no more bin liners and duct tape.

Still feel like a prat using the electric chair trolley things in the supermarket but it's that or hopping behind a normal trolley.

Still haven't run out of stuff to watch on Netflix.

Still followstuff on here despite knowing that there's no skiing for me for at least 18 months, possibly considerably longer.

Hey @HurtleVery Happy

Just had a camera stuck in there on Monday under general anaesthetic! I thought I was past the diagnosis stage a while back, but the consultant wasn't happy with some uncertainties in the MRI report so wanted a peek for himself... Waiting to go back and find out what he saw.

@jjams82, oh my goodness, progress seems awfully slow. Hope you're getting about OK in the interim. x

@sequoiaborg, I was daft enough to think having the arthroscopy right smack in the middle of silage time was a good idea rolling eyes

Apart from that, yep I'm in chill mode:D
