What's going on with you, part II...
About two months ago I snapped my ankle. Yes heard an actual snap in my ankle when I landed on it full force with the ankle bone. I nearly passed out twice from the pain trying to get home. I had gone into shock. I am still on crutches and still struggle to get around comfortably. I have had an MRI done on the ankle finally and will find out next week what the heck is wrong with my ankle. My partner and I need me to be fighting fit for the trip to Bratislava to live with him and it has been put on hold due to this injury. Hopefully I wont need an operation.

That sounds horrible! Having had gout bedeveling an ankle, I can only imagine what that feels like.

My ex suffered gout and it sounded horrendous. Will see what this is in a few days time. I hope no surgery is needed. My physio says sounds like an avulsion fracture and bone bruising, but we shall see.

So, I have an eustation tube dysfunction in my left ear and I have an ATFL rupture with partial thickness CFL tear and deep deltoid contusion. I also have a cleft of fluid undercutting the talar attachment and I have a small ankle joint effusion. I will hear from my surgeon on Thursday about what needs to be done.

Well hopefully it doesn't require surgery at all but the hospital has referred me to the head surgeon which is worrying as to why. But thank you.

Spoke to my surgeon yesterday. Yes I will be soon having an operation on my ankle and wont be able to walk on it for a month straight. Great.....on the plus side, here in NZ we have UHC and the surgeon said it wont cost me a cent. Yes I know....taxes. But I wont be lumped with a massive bill at the end unlike if I lived in America. I am glad to be a kiwi. I can just focus on healing and learning to walk again on it.

Do you mean learning to walk on it in water?

No, unlike solid surfaces, water does not put so much pressure on the feet that one stands on. Water yields; floors, pavement, and soil don't.

So it is a good idea to go to a warm pool (as it is winter here) and go practice walking (after the forbidden month after surgery) and practice walking in a warm pool maybe?

That is up to a physician. I am not a physician.

Finally ACC has approved my operation. Yes it is universal healthcare. It takes a long time unfortunately. I have been injured for four months with ligaments having snapped in half. I need the ligaments reattached. I now will be having them reattached in two weeks time on the 19th of July. I am very much looking forward to it but I know I will be terrified on the day. Thank god they will give me plenty of happy human drugs during the surgery.
