Ended up with the surgery. While the break was clean torn ligaments were pulling everything apart as they tried to heal. Ended up with 1 plate and a few button sutures. Doc seemed pretty confident that I should be close to 100% when all is said and done.

I’ve been listening to elk bugle from the house basically since the leg broke. At least I got a few good trips in this year!

Praying for quick healing and 100% functionality.

I was where you are just last year. Exact same break and surgery. God speed your healing and hope you keep your eye on new adventures.
How are you feeling a year down the road? Trying to stay positive with it but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous

While there are many great pictures posted under this topic, I think there should be a separate section just for photos taken in the Mountains. The diversity of scenery in the Mt. is just amazing. Keep it up guys.

I don't think it will ever feel the same. Not worse, but a very slight reduction in mobility. A lot of it is in my head though. I am much more careful and a bit nervous walking on uneven ground. I use trekking poles many times, even whitetail hunting in rough country. Part of my head game is undoubtedly because, 2.5 months after the right ankle break and surgery, I had a total knee replacement on the left leg. So kind of a double wammy. That being said, I can do everything I used to be able to do before the break and knee replacement, minus I'm still working on leg strength on the knee replacement. Hiked 28.5 miles with a pack in Colorado this year over 4 days. No pain. No swelling. Just a tad more careful. The truth is, I was ecstatic with that! I feared I might have to hang it up out west. But I'm well on my way I feel.

Just keep hitting the rehab hard. Between my two surgies, I was down for almost 4.5 months ouf of the last 12 ... and plan on elk hunting next year, Lord willing. Best wishes on a full recovery.
