New Hardware

Got a look at the hardware in my foot today. Had surgery last month to fuse the knuckle in the big toe. 2 more weeks in the boot for a total of 8 weeks without driving my Truck

Re: New Hardware

First 2 days were very painful then it eased up. I’m 6 weeks in with 2 more to go and NO pain at all. Can’t wait to get back to banging gears

Re: New Hardware

Looks good. As long as you’re not overweight the hardware will hold and you’ll be good to go.

Re: New Hardware

I bet you do have the itch to drive again. My neighbor got tramples by a horse and got pins put in her ankle. 8 weeks in the wheel chair, 2 in a walker, then a few more weeks in the boot. She was miserable the entire time. She also caught a hoof to the face so she looked like she got the crap beat out of her. Broken nose and 2 black eyes.

Hopefully this will solve your problem!
I have a screw about like that that was removed last April when I had a giant bunion removed. The screw was put in about '05 and was backing out.

Is that horse now named Little Friskies and Old Gluepot?

Re: New Hardware

.

Amazing to me how the new hardware looks like run-of-the-mill plumbers tape and wood screws!

Stuff is probably made of titanium though.

“Screw backing out”. Not what I want to hear

Indeed. It would appear that yours is better attached. FWIW the other two were OK.

Re: New Hardware

I'm sure nowadays the doctor uses red or blue loctite to keep them from backing out. These are modern times. I'm glad you're on the mend.

Re: New Hardware

Glad you're mending. Gout, break it, or just disintegrating?
