It is going to happen. Not for awhile, maybe not for 4 or 6 months, but it is going to happen.
A year and half after my initial appraisal for my foot, the lag being caused by a certain little pandemic, I finally got in to see the surgeon. This is the report from the x-ray.
Surgery will involve inserting three screws and two plates around my ankle. I don't know how to glean that from the report, below, but it is what I was told.
