In honor of Halloween, and all things spooky, I thought I'd share this picture. It's an X-Ray of a repaired Triplane Ankle Fracture. That's right, this is what the inside of my son's ankle now looks like. (Although this isn't his ankle … we won't see his post-surgery X-rays for a couple weeks.) The screws connect the three broken bones. They will most likely stay in his ankle for life unless the metal causes problems and needs to be removed at a later date.
The poor kid was not out socializing on Halloween. Instead he was home recovering on Vicodin. It's no wonder, don't ya think?
