rolled my ankle in my Danskos walking to my car after work and now I can't put any weight on that right foot. the shoes hav
ple got a bit of a platform on them, so my ankle should be worse off but isn't, but the foot itself, I landed with all of my weight basically on the outside edge of my foot & rolled it under?

I basically felt for bones sticking out, and finding none I drove my broke ass home. whatever is or isn't wrong with it, as isn't a compound fracture, can be dealt with tomorrow at my clinic and not via urgent care.

It might be considerably better tomorrow, speaking from similarly observed injuries.

What The Fuck. Not clicking.

My bro got some ankle surgery. "Wanna see the pics?"

Me: NO. NO I DO NOT. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THEM. DO NOT SEND THEM. DO NOT.
I made the mistake of watching an RPLND before I went in to have that done.

Then I proposed filming mine, and speeding it up 32x (so that the resulting video would only be 10 minutes-ish long), and setting it to Yakety Sax. The doctors turned me down. :/

People can get shocky real easy sometimes. My second wife almost went into shock getting a tattoo.

I had a nurse pass out once packing my leg wound. She was like 100 years old and still wore the whole nurse’s outfit, complete with white hose. And that was just a hole about an inch in diameter that held about a yard of gauze inside LOL.

The wound was once large enough that the doc unwrapped my leg (which was completely fixed in an apparatus) revealing a hole about five inches long and was able to reach in and pull out the bottom 2” of my tibia and set it on a tray. He initially said “look away” but when he saw that I wasn’t, no biggie.

I almost had him talked into letting me stay awake to watch one of my surgeries. Almost.

Didn't you watch your orchiectomy? You could have had a promising career as a surgeon, or a serial killer.

Louise passed out when I had a suppurating dehiscence lanced on my RPLND line while I was going for chemo (in retrospect, they rushed me into chemo too soon, should have let the surgical site heal up better first). It was a wee hole, but held a solid half meter of packing afterwards.

It’s like having a magician’s scarf inside your body.
