A-Z Journey of a Broken Foot (Lisfranc Injury)



If you’d like to know about my own injury, here’s a link to the inside scoop :) But my daily A-Z posts are more general and informative, just so, if the time comes, you know what someone is going through because, trust me, it’s not ‘just a broken foot!’

MR GOUGOULIAS – You won’t always get a choice, but if you do, make sure your Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon is very experienced with foot injuries. It’s a complicated bundle of bones, and nerves down there - think how your foot is supposed to be connected to every part of your body in Reflexology; there's 22 bones and 36 joints in that small area!
I had no choice as I was taken in as an emergency but fortunately ended up with this lovely man, who relaxed me completely, and happened to know his stuff too! If you're interested here's a linky-link to learn a bit more about the man :)

    1. Absolutely! I've heard all sorts of stories about orthopaedic surgeons that really don't know anything about this injury - I thank the Universe everyday for getting Mr G :)
