This shows how swollen my foot, ankle and leg still are 7 days after surgery and 18 days after I broke it. The red mark in the front of the ankle is where one of the screws connects to one (both) of the plates.
Below left is the inside of the ankle and below right is the outside of the ankle. They opened me up and put a plate in on each side. There are at least six screw pinning together 4 out of 5 of the broken bones. The 5th bone on the back of the foot/ankle was put back into place. He said it should heal on its own just being mobilized.
The nurse redressed the wounds, and a tech came in a put me in a blue fiberglass cast. In two weeks I will go back to Concord Orthopedics. They will cut off the cast and remove the sutures. I will then be put in another cast. I will not be able to put ANY weight on the foot/ankle for THREE months!!
No Farmer's Market for me. :(
