I thought I would post up the progress for my ankle so far. I broke it on August 29, 2009 and had surgery on September 9, 2009. I had a plate and eight screws put in. My ankle (Fibula - Lateral Malleolus) was broken into eight large pieces and bunch of small ones. I broke it doing a back roll to revert or whatever you call it. I finished up my last physical therapy session last Friday. I saw the doctor today and he said it looks really good except that I have calcium deposits starting to take hold on my tendon directly across the third, fourth, and fifth screws. This is where the tendon is under to much stress after an injury and starts to turn to bone. In the picture below it looks like an inverted triangle and is light gray.
For those people who wakeboard without insurance the total amount billed so far for my doctors visits, physical therapy, and surgery, etc.. is at $38,432 so far! This doesn't include the surgery for removing the plate next year either...
I should be able to wakeboard again in February... it's been a long wait so far... at least I'm walking/running around again with little pain.
