Cat Scans of the Ankle

Here's a link to the CT scans they took of my leg in the emergency room at St. Anthony's Summit Medical Center just before my first surgery.

While I'm not trained in reading these things, I can see why my leg hurts. Notice how my right leg was almost two inches shorter than my left leg! My talus bone is about an inch up inside where my fibula and tibia should be. How awesome is that?

Here's an image of the cleanly broken fibula. That felt amazing when it happened.

This is what's left of my distal tibia (lower tibia). This is what's to be repaired during the next surgery. I'm really interested in seeing what they do. There's two million pieces in there. How will they put them all back together?
