 Re: Operation yesterday: life is full of surprises.

Hi David,
I'm in NZ & also have found the free hospital system here incredible. I was helicoptered to hospital, had a 2 week stay - surgery after the 1st week. The surgeons and nurses made the whole nightmare so much easier to deal with. There understanding and care made me humble & so grateful.

I've got two plates one against tib & 1 against fiib, with screws running in betweeen. To me it just means once my fractures heal I'll have the most stable ankle ever! So I wouldn't worry too much about your plate - it just adds stability.

Keep your leg as elevated as much as possible over the next month. I found if it was down for even 5 minutes it throbbed.

Good luck,
