Follow up with fracture and orthopaedic consultant after my operation. Pleased with the ankle although pointed out it was
a) properly fractured from my Tennis and
b) got two osteochrondal lesions in really ‘bad’ spots. Looked through the pictures from surgery.
He managed to shave a few lesions, create a crater on the right of my ankle so that good cartilage can grow and snip out a heap of bad bits that were sliding between the bones and making mischief. He thinks I will be able to play tennis by the Spring (hurrah) but that I’ll probably need the same surgery again in a couple of years (and probably on repeat from there on in).
So bugga it… Spring Tennis it is xx
