Foot one week after surgery

Foot one week after surgery

Many people ask me what I have done with my foot, and some people ask why I am in a wheelchair. To not repeat the story too many times, here is an explanation.

First of all, the reason is that I had planned surgery. Not an accident, everything is fine. The short explanation is that my ankle is worn out, and now they tried to fix it.

Four weeks without any leaning on the foot at all, and then swimming and bicycling and training the foot until I get full movement again.

The story from the surgery say I have Osteochondritis dissecans.

Surgery was done at Hässleholms Sjukhus in Sweden. Excellent service!

Now, people that really want to know what was done…they basically removed part of the surface inside the joint in the ankle, drilled some holes to increase surface in the joint and replaced the surface with a mix of blood and bone marrow (that they took from my hip). Not that complicated the doctor said…and they did it via arthroscopy.
