... You don't need drugs to go yellow / jaundiced.

So hows your ankle going David?

I've just managed to stuff mine up nicely over the weekend. Currently waiting for an appointment with orthopedic surgeon in the next couple of weeks for a better idea of the extent of the damage and how to proceed. But physio seams to think I've got complete separation of the ligaments, no apparent fractures from the x-rays thankfully.

Has anyone had surgery to repair ankle ligaments - what was the recovery time like?

Dan, I didn't quite understand on Sunday but were you bouldering in the evening or was it actually nighttime when it happened? (ps Thanks to you and John for the climbing that morning)

It was early evening. It was the foot that landed on the mat. The one that landed half on was fine?!?
Thanku for the climb!

Yeah I let Dan talk me into some of that un-roped stuff they call bouldering.

Dropped from a reasonable height, cant remember the exact details of the impact, just the loud snap/pop sound when I hit. I can weight it ok without too much pain, which I'm hoping means that a bone break is unlikely? But everyone has said I would probably have been better off breaking it!

In my experience its worth the few hundred dollars to have it scanned and sorted out properly from the get go.

The GP I went to originally had me thinking it wasn't a big deal. He referred me to a physio. The physio looked at it and seams to think its a lot worse than the GP let on. According to her it should have hurt a hell a lot more than I made out it did, which is a bad thing as it means the damage was bad enough to sever some of the nerves as well.

She has started treatment to reduce the swelling but has suggested I make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to properly investigate. Its a couple of week wait for an appointment with the surgeon so I'm in limbo at the moment. Thank f@ck I have private health!

The mat is about a year old, it's not the worlds greatest mat though.
