The 12th of May I had a quite painful football (soccer) accident. My leg had the unpleasant feeling to meet the weight of two other players. And my leg experienced the same as what a branch of a tree would experience when you put your full weight on it. It snapped. To be more precise, my tibia broke in three places and my fibula in one.
So below you can find some pictures I took with my phone and some of the X-ray pictures that were taken in hospital.
After this first surgery, I received a second opinion from another surgeon. At that point I had to make the choice between this external fixture on my leg or a second surgery. I chose the second surgery. In that surgery a titanium bar of 36 cm. length and 11,5mm. diameter was put straight into the core of my leg. Below you can see the result.
So, after a little bit more than a month, I’m walking around on crutches or rolling around in my wheelchair. The rehabilitation will be a long road I’ll have to take. Swimming and probably some biking will be the only sports I can do for a few months. But I’m optimistic. So come on, let’s do this!!!
