    So, I went to see my surgeon and...

    I went to see my orthopedics surgeon the other day because my fused ankle is still hurting and getting worse. Iím going to have my left shoe modified with a rocker to hopefully alleviate the pain. Itíll probably look pretty dorky but I donít care if it helps. If this doesnít work my next option is yet another surgery. This time he will replace my ankle with a real fake one. http://www.dralvine.com/agilityankle.php

    If this doesnít work, well then, bye, bye foot.

    Sad to hear that you may have to start going bionic. Looks like a cool ankle, though.

    Prayers for you.

    Sorry to hear about your bad HOOF. I too am walking around like Hopalong Cassidy ( old Cowboy movie star to you youngsters) .
    I am not going to get a new ankle because at my age it would outlast me and I do not want the Medical Mafia getting rich off my HOOF and it would be the only thing to to survive creamation.

    Best of Luck

    Hang tough Toni. I don't know about the ankles but old guy around the corner got both knees done. He walks better than most of the young'ins. Told me he wished he would have done it 10 yrs earlier.Good luck.

    I wish the were bionic... well then again. You know how much that would cost!

    I’d have to have two bionic ones otherwise I’d run around in circles. I always wondered how the six million dollar man was able to run without scrapping the back of his head on the pavement or running in circles. If I recall correctly, he only had one bionic arm so the other one would be like limp spaghetti compared to the bionic one.
