In September of 2015, I fell 19' and broke my tibia,fibula, and blew a dime size hole thru my ankle. I had three surgeries and the third was a success. In that surgery, they did a bone graft as well as adding hardware. After recovery and therapy, I had about eight months of decent days that the pain was bearable. I currently can't walk unless I'm taking pain medication. I've exhausted all options that are viable for me. I'm currently waiting on a surgery date for a transtibial amputation. I know you may think that sounds awful, but I'm actually excited about it. I'll be able to get my life back. I won't have to be heavily medicated just to be able to walk. I'll be able to run, hike, take walks with my wife, and do all the things that I miss so much. I'm 54 and I'm not going to give up. This procedure and getting a prosthesis is going to open the door for me to get back to all the things I've been missing out on for two years.
