X is for X-ray

 

Maybe this x-ray will explain why I’m in pain all the time. And why I always have to get a pat-down at the airport!

Just a view of the screws and pins and staples in my right foot from the triple arthrodesis and ankle- fusion surgeries. Ouch!

As of 04/09/2014, all the screws were removed, or most of them were. Two of them broke so those two halves are still in there. But that won’t be the last my foot will see of screws: I found out with the hardware removal surgery that the ankle fusion did not take so I will have to have another big-ass surgery: this one will have a rod that goes through the bottom of my foot up to about midway on my tibia. I’m NOT HAPPY about this!!! Sigh.

But anyway, it is what it is…  Waaah….
