    Back in the day when I was racing moto cross seriously I certainly would've had a crack...but that was many moons/nasty ankle breakages ago. My ankle would collapse if I tried to land that shit now mate. Tis why I've taken to VMX. I'm at the last chance ankle saloon now. Next nasty one = foot off.

    Yeah the ankle is a pretty intricate joint....doesn't like being pulverised. I had a triple fushion done a few months ago...no arthritic pain in it now for the first time in several years, but obviously quite restricted in movement seeing as I now have three less joints in the ankle/foot than I used to!

    Way to smash your own teeth in.
    For a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. Keep an open mind, just dont let your brains fall out.

    Can you get a replacement joint? My partner may need one. Sorry dont know your injury but they have mentioned it a couple of times for her as a viable option. Not common though. I see the pain she gets from it and feel for anybody with the same issue.

    Depends what she's done to it. You can get joint replacement, but that's normally for the top of the talus (from memory) where it joins the tib/fib. You can also get complete ankle replacement, but they don't last so they won't generally do that until you're an old cunt. I basically munted the talus and sub talar into around 20 lil bits and was always told it'd give me a shitload of trouble down the track due to the severity of the breakage. They were quite right...hence the triple fusion. Like this...
