The video of this morning's procedure is still processing on You Tube. I'll put up the update here when it's ready.
Getting metal pulled through flesh and bone is a unique feeling. I'm looking forward to never going through it again.
Actually, it wasn't that bad. Everyone in the office expected me to take a video. Dr. Buchanan told us that he wore a tie for the occasion. During the procedure he did a great job of narrating the action and, unlike me, kept the commentary interesting.
Dr. Buchanan said he thought there was a good chance his drill would make the blog. He was correct. The drill he used was a wedding present. Earlier in the week he was probably doing repairs around the house with it.
While we're waiting on the video, this is what an ankle looks like after an external fixator is removed from it. I didn't get any pictures of the two giant holes in my shin, unfortunately. That was probably the worst part of the whole deal.
