Emergency surgery the next day left me with an IM nail down the tibia stabilized by 4 screws, two in the ankle and two in the knee. Additionally my ankle broke and received 2 screws holding it together. 16 days post-op and they have taken all bandages off and removed staples. Curios to know if anyone else's surgeons advised no splint/soft cast. Since ace bandage was removed a tennis… Continue
